The impact of financial crisis and low inflation environment on short-term inflation expectations in Poland
No 235, NBP Working Papers from Narodowy Bank Polski, Economic Research Department
To what extent financial crisis whose sharp face begun in 2008 and low inflation environment that started in 2013 affect inflation expectations in Poland? Have inflation expectations of the private sector become more forward-looking? Is monetary policy still able to influence expectations as compared with the pre-crisis period? Those are the main questions addressed in this paper. To answer them we analyse survey-based measures of inflation expectations of consumers, enterprises and financial sector analysts. Estimation of simple and extended hybrid models of inflation expectations combined with verification of orthogonality of expectational errors with respect to available information leads us to the conclusion that since 2008 inflation expectations of enterprises and financial sector analysts have become more forward-looking, better exploiting available information and more sensitive to interest rate changes and developments in the real economy. At the same time formation of consumer inflation expectations has not been affected significantly.
