MasterCard Incorporated Research Report

On July 21, 2013, MasterCard Incorporated (MasterCard) announced that
according to the latest findings of the SKBI-MasterCard Singapore Index of
Inflation Expectations (SInDEx), Singapore consumers are expecting inflation
to continue on a downward trend in the next one to five years amid slowdown in
big emerging economies like China and Brazil and persistent weakness in the
Eurozone. SInDEx was developed by Dr. Aurobindo Ghosh and Professor Jun Yu
from Singapore Management University's Sim Kee Boom Institute for Financial
Economics (SMU SKBI) along with MasterCard to help researchers understand the
behavior and sentiments of decision makers in Singapore households. According
to Dr. Aurobindo Ghosh, "Better than expected job situation and housing market
in the U.S. seem to portend an earlier tapering of the U.S. Federal Reserve's
stimulus spending with accommodative monetary policy, and consequent upward
pressure on interest rates. Furthermore, Singapore is facing a weakening
impact of imported inflation owing to a cyclical slowdown of some of the ASEAN
economies, as well as regional economies like China and India." The Full
