In the environment of extreme uncertainty in which we have been immersed for the last year, the issue of greatest concern at present is the future behaviour of an essential variable in decision-making: inflation. Its implications are profound for individuals, companies and investors, especially because of its collateral effects on interest rates, another key parameter for the economy.
