China December CPI Inflation At 4.1%; PPI Inflation At 1.7%

(For December 2011)

China Consumer Price Index was up 4.1% in December, vs. 4.0% consensus and 4.2% November reading. Food inflation rose from 8.8% to 9.1%..

China Producer Price Index fell to 1.7% from 4.2% in November. Consensus was at 2.1%.

To repeat: I believe Chinese monetary authorities will ease fast.

The chart looks king of worrying…PPI started falling so fast in 2008.
