Hello Future is blue readers,

Welcome to our newsletter about European economic affairs bringing together top experts from academia and think tanks to discuss the most pressing economic challenges of today. Future is Blue is promoted by Funcas

Given the importance of the evolution of prices to the outlook for monetary policy and hence, the overall macro picture, in today's newsletter we focus on the recent performance of one of the EU countries where disinflation is most visible, namely Spain. We will also consider how price increases are affecting households depending on their level of income and other characteristics. 

Alice Faibishenko, Senior Advisor at Funcas, shares with our podcast host, Carlos Carnicero Urabayen, some insights about this topic that are included in the latest  Spanish and International Economic and Financial Outlook (SEFO), produced by Funcas. More info on our latest podcast episode below.
