Global rate hikes reach fever pitch in race against inflation - Nikkei Asia

Quick Summary

Beyond the current market turmoil, a possible recession is on the horizon. More than 60% of CEOs expect the economy to enter a recession within 18 months, according to a survey of global CEOs and executives released Friday by The Conference Board.

Malaysia raised interest rates for the first time in four years and four months in May as the ringgit depreciated against the dollar.

Rates were increased a record 80 times in the first six months of 2022, a tabulation by Nikkei shows. Of those, emerging countries accounted for 60 times.
