Country Report
This article presents an economic outlook for Hungary for 2008. It is noted that the national bank's room for rate cuts will most likely be limited as uncertainty over the inflationary environment continues to rise. It is also expected that, with political pressure to increase spending mounting, an additional risk to the continuation of monetary easing can be seen. There is growing concern that a bolder government may seek to loosen its fiscal policy ahead of parliamentary elections in 2010.
