Eurozone rediscovers the spring in its step

people

Eurozone consumer prices have fallen for the fourth consecutive month, but the rates of deflation and unemployment have eased amid signs of an economic rebound on the Continent. Inflation hit -0.1% in the single currency area last month, up from -0.3% in February. The change was attributed largely to a levelling-off of plunging fuel prices rather than to the start of the ECB's quantitative easing programme, which should feed through into growth and inflationary pressure later this year. Unemployment in the eurozone fell to 11.3% of the workforce – its lowest level for nearly three years – though France and Italy both recorded an annual increase in unemployment.
