Robust economic growth - purchasing power lags behind

Landsbankinn Economic Research forecasts 6.5% economic growth this year, record growth since 2007, only for considerable cooling to follow. Per the forecast, the policy rate will enter a rate-cutting cycle in the latter part of 2023 while inflation remains about 4% until 2025. Purchasing power looks set to contract by 0.4% this year but to pick up to the tune of 0.5% next year - a much slower increase than in recent year.
