IMF’s Lagarde warns on rate risk from US tax reform

AFP

AFP, PARIS:  IMF chief Christine Lagarde warned Saturday that economic stimulus from US tax cuts may lead to a rapid rise in interest rates which would weigh on countries with high debt levels.

The International Monetary Fund was going to be “attentive” to the consequences of the reform, which notably includes a sharply lower corporate tax rate, she told French radio station France Inter.

Lagarde’s remarks echoed concerns in financial markets which have been in turmoil amid fears that rising US inflation will trigger faster Federal Reserve interest rate rises than had previously been expected.

Several key stock markets lost around 10 per cent last week in a brutal correction that Lagarde said in the interview had been “inevitable”.

She said the US tax reform “will operate like a kind of stimulus on the current economic situation” in the US which was already experiencing “strong” growth.
