The real and monetary situation

During 2010, as a result of the renewed vigour of international trade, the global GDP returned to growth, fuelling a recovery in profitability for businesses. Nonetheless, the purchasing power of households in advanced countries continued to suffer due to the high level of debt, the stagnation of employment, the increase in food and energy prices and the policies for reducing public deficits.

The global GDP increased at an average rate of 5.2% (-0.2% in 2009), reflecting, on one hand, the significant, through slowing, contribution of emerging countries, and, on the other, modest growth in the USA and the Euro Area. Inflation, driven by the increase in prices of raw materials, returned to growth: oil (Brent index) had an average price in December of $ 91.8 per barrel (+22% in twelve months).
