Here's the Economic Calendar for the week commencing 22 March 2010. There's a few key data points due out of New Zealand (GDP, current account, consumer confidence), which will be interesting as an update on that economy; forecasts are for a 3rd quarter of positive growth, and probably about 0.6%. There's also some CPI stats from the UK and Japan, which may be interesting given recent comments by a Bank of England official on the threat of inflation, and Japan on the other hand with its long standing battle against deflation. And then of course there's another revision to US Q4 GDP on Friday.
