Treasury Release : Monthly Economics Indicators July 2014


The July Monthly Economic Indicators (MEI) was published today on the Treasury Website at 2:00pm. The report provides a summary of recent economic events.

• Inflation remained moderate in the June quarter, but with spare capacity exhausted, price pressures are expected to intensify.

This month’s special topic looks at the interaction between fiscal and monetary policy.
