Chile: Consumer confidence eases in February
Consumer confidence fell to 104.0 in February from January’s 112.2. Weaker sentiment came amid an uptick in unemployment and inflation at the outset of the year, war in Ukraine and concerns over the progress being made drawing up the new constitution in the constituent assembly.
The fall came on the back of a deterioration in consumers’ assessments of the future situation. In contrast, consumers’ views of the current situation picked up.
