Washington, DC --- 12 October 2021
2. Wideshot of IMF team in studio
3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tobias Adrian, IMF Monetary and Capital Markets Department Director / Financial Counselor:
“As countries were fighting the pandemic, they eased monetary policy, they expanded fiscal expenditures and as a result, debt in the corporate sector, debt among governments and in some countries in household sectors has increased tremendously. So high leverage is one vulnerability.”
4. Cutaway Wideshot
5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tobias Adrian, IMF Monetary and Capital Markets Department Director / Financial Counselor:
“Easy monetary policy means that financial conditions ease, interest rates allow and risk asset prices are rising. However, we do detect stretched asset valuations in some segments and those could revert.”
6. Cutaway Wideshot
7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tobias Adrian, IMF Monetary and Capital Markets Department Director / Financial Counselor:
“Emerging markets and developing economies have benefited tremendously from the ease of financial conditions. They have been able to access capital markets throughout the crisis. But there's a risk of a sharp reversal of capital flows to those countries.”
8. Cutaway Wideshot
9. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tobias Adrian, IMF Monetary and Capital Markets Department Director / Financial Counselor:
“Crypto valuations have risen more than tenfold in just over two years. And crypto valuations are highly volatile. Just this year, we have seen run ups, declines and run ups associated with leverage in this important space. So we are taking a very deep look at the crypto ecosystem, and we're developing policy formulations for countries around the world.”
10. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tobias Adrian, IMF Monetary and Capital Markets Department Director / Financial Counselor:
“Some of the increases in prices in particular, and commodities have been higher and more persistent than what we had initially anticipated. And so while we continue to forecast that inflation is a temporary phenomenon with a reversion back to target in the vast majority of countries, they are certainly quite a bit of upside-risk going forward to both the level and the persistence of inflation. “
