ECB’s Kazaks: Market bets on rate cuts in early 2024 are wrong

  • Sees rate hikes going past July as inflation remains too high
  • Softness of the economy is unlikely to deal with inflation
  • There are still strong risks of persistence in inflation
  • Don’t think that in July we’ll be comfortable enough to say “we’re done”
