The global economy is entering a phase of inflationary risk, the IMF warned on Tuesday, as it called on central banks to be “very, very vigilant” and take early action to tighten monetary policy should price pressures prove persistent; resurgent consumer demand in the US is feeding hopes of a strong holiday shopping season but that demand is further straining supply chains and many large retailers are stocking up on merchandise much earlier than usual; and a huge solar array on Colorado’s southern High Plains will officially launch this week, giving green energy proponents a new beacon for their cause.
