The IMF World CPI Index is now just above 3.00% and falling

The IMF World CPI Index is now just above 3.00% and falling. Digging into further detail shows the average CPI index for advanced economies is just 1.7% with few signs of increasing to a point where interest rates would need to be increased. One theory of why this continues to be the case is centered on the continued cheap money supply worldwide and the significant increase we have seen in global capacity. 10 Year European Bonds yields have also fallen to 1.39% compared to the 1.94% where they were at the beginning of the year leading to the possibility for Central Bankers to use negative interest rates as a monetary policy tool. With both AAA Australian Bonds offering an excellent risk free arbitrate as well as certain domestic equities providing significant income in excess of bond rates, don't expect leading domestic equities or the AUD to fall anytime soon.
