Forbes Asia;11/26/2007, Vol. 3 Issue 20, p15
The author reflects on global broad-based inflation. He states that the Russian government has persuaded food producers to keep prices of sensitive items stable until after upcoming parliamentary elections. Argentina has been imposing price controls on many products, and in China rising inflation is creating increasing anxiety. He adds that the global inflation unleashed by Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve in 2004 is now showing up more and more in traditional price indexes.
