[Tin] PboC vừa mới tăng lãi suất cơ bản lên thêm 0.25% nữa để chống lạm phát, Deposit rate at 3.25 per cent and the one-year lending rate at 6.31 per cent (Requirement Reserves đã tăng lên 20% đối với các NHTM lớn từ giữa tháng 3 vừa rồi):

Raising reserve requirements can be an attractive tool because they dampen the supply of credit domestically without encouraging inflationary capital inflows. Raising rates can lead to destabilising capital inflows as international investors seek the highest available returns. Governor Zhou said recently, however, that capital inflows should not reduce the case for using interest rates as a policy tool

Chinese officials may be on guard against increased inflows of “hot money,” or speculative capital, as today’s move widens the differential with rates in developed economies. In the U.S., the Federal Reserve has kept its benchmark near zero since December 2008.

And now: FOMC minutes: No taper, no rate rise in 2011 (FT)
