Economic Development Index

The Policy Agenda’s index predicts a further slow-down of the Hungarian economy

Policy Agenda’s  Economic Development Index (EDI), which indicates a short-run forecast of the economic growth, stood at 1,04 in the last quarter of 2011. The figure is 0,3 point lower than that of the 3rd quarter in 2011. All these are indicators of a further slow-down of the economy in the next half year – according to the Policy Agenda Research Institute’s analysis published  by MTI on Wednesday.

Economic Development Index: neither improvement is perceivable nor optimism

The Economic Development Index (EDI) calculated by thePolicy Agenda for the 3rd quarter of 2013 was 0.95 so the slight optimism (1.11) noticed in the previous quarter has gone and now each partial-indicator of this index shows again the same less-favourable situation observed at the beginning of the year. Compared to the previous quarter of the year the situation as regards monetary processes is assessable more pessimistically, and there are not any signs suggesting even the slightest change to the positive in the management of households either. Neither permanent improvement nor a rapid evolution of the business management is expectable.
