China’s Economic ‘Sugar High’ Could Amplify US Inflation

The manufacturing sector in China experienced a slowdown in July, which could have far-reaching implications for the US economy. According to new research, this unexpected development could lead to an increase in inflation in the US if Chinese policymakers continue their efforts to boost the economy through investments in manufacturing.

Recent changes in credit allocation in China are driving this shift towards manufacturing. With banks moving away from lending to the property sector and towards manufacturing, there is a noticeable increase in new “green loans” as China’s clean energy sector grows. Estimates suggest that new manufacturing lending could make up a significant portion of total lending in the near future.

If these investments are successful, and credit growth in China rises to 12% over the next two years, it could impact prices in the US. The increased demand from a manufacturing boom in China would lead to higher costs for producers, which would eventually be passed on to consumers. This scenario could result in a sustained increase in inflation over the next two years.

However, contrary to conventional wisdom, researchers believe that an expansion of China’s manufacturing sector could actually put pressure on global commodity markets and the manufacturing supply chain. As China continues to see growth in its manufacturing sector, these effects on global inflation cannot be ignored.
