From the Editor’s Desk 

The National Bureau of Statistics made available the real GDP growth figure for the first quarter of 2017, on Tuesday 22nd of May 2017.  The economy contracted by 0.52% in the first quarter of 2017, also implying five consecutive quarters of contraction. At the same time the economy contracted less by 0.15% compared to the previous quarter, regardless it still posed as a upside risk to annual projected 2.7% growth for 2017; eventually undercutting the economic recovery and growth plan (ERPG) projection.  

On the same day, the apex bank left its monetary anchor at 14%, untouched, thereby retaining its earlier position to trade off growth for inflation. It’s important that monetary policy begin to adopt a middle ground, where reducing output gaps and unemployment is equally  important as price stability:  After all the role of monetary policy in inflation outcome is limited in the face of mounting push factors.
