A senior representative of the National Bank of Romania (BNR) explained to everyone what inflation means, how we have come to pay such high prices for consumer goods today (such as food), but he also showed compassion for the difficulties that ordinary Romanians are now experiencing financially.
The explanations are provided by the adviser to the governor of the National Bank of Romania, Adrian Vasilescu, who has been talking about inflation in Romania ever since it started to be more aggressive, that is, with the explosion of the energy crisis.
The evil would have gone from there, and when the energy crisis moderated, the problem related to inflation in the food sector appeared, and here the population suffers the most, because if you can more easily make savings related to the consumption of electricity or gas , when it comes to everyday food, things get significantly more complicated.
What is actually behind the high prices you have been paying for months. The explanation of a specialist from the BNR
The BNR official seems to be fully aware that inflation has brought great problems to ordinary Romanians, who carry very heavy financial burdens on their shoulders, in the last year.
“Inflation is a phenomenon that hits the population hard, it hits the households of the population and a lot of people are dissatisfied. Also, for analysts it is an opportunity to throw arrows at the National Bank.
Public opinion in Romania understands that the National Bank had important achievements. I think it is important to emphasize that, in the summer of last year, the footprint of inflation in Romania changed.
From January 2021 until the summer of last year, the dominant inflation in Romania was determined by the price of energy. Energy prices influenced the prices of non-food goods.
Well, in the summer of last year, energy prices came to zero per month, because there are two tables that are always given: the annual price and the monthly price. The annual energy prices have remained with the tails of the past, which hang heavy even now, but from the summer of last year until now the monthly prices have been at zero for gas, electricity, and thermal energy”, explained Adrian Vasilescu, at Prima News.
