In the lead section of the Bulletin, IEER examined the changes in wages that may be expected in the year 2016. According to our estimation enterprises plan raising gross salaries by 3.0-3.2%. This is an average wage growth, which slightly exceeds last year’s increase. The second section deals with the effects of falling commodity prices. For the first two months of 2016 the dive in world market prices for energy, precious metals and industrial metals continued. Falling commodity prices seem to have a positive effect on net importers of raw materials such as Hungary, but global financial uncertainty and stress in the emerging economies can have an adverse effect on the Hungarian economy as well.
