Recent increases in growth forecasts, trillions in fiscal stimulus, and the prospect of a household-led boom have spurred a debate around the prospects for inflation.

Current monetary policy is well-positioned to support the reflation of the economy, a return to full economic potential this year and full employment over the next three years.
