Expectation of consumer inflation hits lowest level since July 2012

The expectation of inflation for the 12 months following retreated 0.6 point in August to 6.3 percent, the lowest level since July 2012 (6.2%). In comparison with the same period in the previous year, there was 3.5 percentage points decline in inflation envisaged by Brazilians. The data were released by the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV) on Thursday (24). The proportion of consumers anticipating inflation below the Central Bank's target (4.5%) increased from 30.1% of the total in July, to 31.5% in August. Expected inflation was stable in three of the four income ranges. The fall of the national indicator in August was due only to the reduction of 2.1 points on inflation provided by family income range up to £ $2,100 a month. The highest inflation was 7.7% provided by consumers with family income between R $2,100.01 and R $4,800; the lowest, of 5%, is expected by consumers of higher income (over R $9,600 monthly). "The continuous drop in food prices seems finally to have impacted more significant inflation perception by consumers of lower purchasing power. And the fall of 2.1 points of the median inflation forecast made by this group occurs even with the recent increase in the prices of fuels and energy, "says the Economist Viviane Silk Bittencourt, FGV/IBRE.
