From the Editor’s Desk 

On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, the Federal Government officially launched the Economy Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP). The policy objective is to achieve growth of 2.19% and 7% at the end of 2017 and 2020, respectively. This will also shrink the misery index inwards from 52.48 to 47.24 by the end of 2020.   

We do align with fiscal authorities that the only way out of a recession is through counter cyclical spending. Regardless certain disconnection in the ERGP document needs to be raised.   The ERGP expect broad money and net foreign asset to reach 48.56 trillion and 23.32 trillion by 2020. Which is reflective of 107 % and 162 % growth in broad money and Net foreign asset respectively; we do believe that the ERGP is overly optimistic on monetary aggregate projections. Moreover the effects from sporadic growth in money  is  not taken into  account nor are the proper adjustments that will fuel net foreign asset growth  put in place either. Certainly historical growth and external fundaments so far, do support our position.                   

The inflation figures for March 2017 will be made available on 15th of April, it is expected that core inflation maintain its downward trend. At the same time, headline inflation will continue its re-correction, given the nature of the inflation.
