The aim of the Swiss National Bank (SNB)'s monetary policy is to ensure price stability in the medium and long term. The monetary policy strategy consists of the following three elements: a definition of price stability, a medium-term inflation forecast and a target range for a reference interest rate, the three-month Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate) for Swiss francs. To secure price stability, the SNB provides appropriate monetary conditions. If interest rates remain too low for a lengthy period, the supply of money and credit to the economy is too high, thus triggering an inordinate demand for goods and services. Although this boosts production initially, bottlenecks occur in the course of time and overall production capacity is stretched, thus causing a rise in the level of prices. Conversely, if interest rates are too high for a lengthy period, this reduces the supply of money and credit to the economy. This has a dampening effect on the prices of goods and services. The SNB equates price stability with a rise in the national consumer price index (CPI) of less than 2% per annum. The SNB implements its monetary policy by fixing a target range for the three-month Swiss franc Libor. As a rule, this target range extends over one percentage point, and the SNB generally aims to keep the Libor in the middle of the range. Four times a year, in March, June, September and December, the SNB's Governing Board conducts an assessment of the monetary policy situation. Each of these in-depth assessments results in an interest rate decision. In addition, if circumstances so require, the Governing Board also adjusts the target range for the three-month Libor in Swiss francs between regular assessment dates.

Norges Bank is Norway's central bank. Norges Bank has executive and advisory responsibilities in the area of monetary policy and is responsible for promoting robust and efficient payment systems and financial markets. The operational target of monetary policy is the annual consumer price inflation to be close to 2.5 per cent over time. Monetary policy also contributes to stabilizing output and employment. Norges Bank's most important monetary policy instrument is the key policy rate, which is the interest rate on banks deposits in Norges Bank. The key rate influences short-term money market rates. The key rate and expectations concerning future developments in the key rate are decisive for banks' deposit and lending rates and for bond yields. Norges Bank's Executive Board sets the key rate. The Executive Board is appointed by the King in Council, and is made up of the Governor, the Deputy Governor and five external members. The Executive Board functions as a unified group and the members are collectively responsible for the Bank's decisions. On the basis of the analysis and discussion, the Executive Board assesses the consequences for future interest rate developments and adopts a monetary policy strategy, including alternative strategies. The decision to adopt a monetary policy strategy is made on the same day as the report is published.

The Eurogroup, the main forum for the management of the single currency area, is an informal body that brings together the finance ministers of countries whose currency is the euro. The Commission’s Vice-President for Economic and Monetary Affairs, as well as the President of the European Central Bank, also participate in Eurogroup meetings. The Eurogroup’s role is to ensure close coordination of economic policies within the euro area. It also aims to promote conditions for stronger economic growth, as well as to promote financial stability. The Eurogroup usually meets once a month, on the eve of the meeting of the Council of the European Union (Economic and Financial Affairs - ECOFIN).

The decisions on interest rates are announced at 12 noon (GMT) immediately following the Thursday meeting. The Bank seeks to meet the inflation target by setting an interest rate. The level of interest rates is decided by a special committee – the Monetary Policy Committee. The MPC consists of nine members – five from the Bank of England and four external members appointed by the Chancellor. It is chaired by the Governor of the Bank of England. Decisions of the Monetary Policy Committee are made on a one-person one-vote basis, with the Governor having the casting vote if there is no majority. The Bank's monetary policy objective is to deliver price stability – low inflation – and, subject to that, to support the Government's economic objectives including those for growth and employment. Price stability is defined by the Government's inflation target of 2%. Interest rates would be changing all the time, and by large amounts, causing unnecessary uncertainty and volatility in the economy.

This survey presents estimates of monthly sales levels for wholesale merchants in Canada, each province and territory. This survey provides information on the performance of the wholesale trade sector and is an important indicator of the health of the Canadian economy. Wholesale sales in real terms are calculated by deflating current dollar values using import and industry product price indexes. As many of the goods sold by wholesalers are imported, fluctuations in the value of the Canadian dollar can have an important influence on the prices of goods bought and sold by wholesalers. This is the percentage change compared with the the previous month.

The index is presented as an index with a value between 1-100. Values above 50 indicate that the economic outlook is positive. Alternately, readings below 50 mean future outlook is less favourable.

The gross domestic product (GDP) is the main indicator for the development of the economy. Economic growth is measured in terms of the volume change in GDP. This is the sum of value added generated in the Netherlands. Value added equals value of production minus value of consumption. Here it is thus the value that is added to the goods and services used in the production process. Consumption does not include services of labour and capital. Value added can be valued at basic prices and at market prices. Value added excluding indirect taxes and subsidies (with the exception of non-product related taxes and subsidies) is called value added at basic prices. If the indirect taxes and subsidies are included, the term value added at market prices is used. The term “gross” also indicates that depreciation is included in value added, and thus also in GDP. Provides the final estimate of growth in GDP.
