Economists have estimated that a possible increase in the interest rate would be risky for the national economy, because it would debilitate the development of 2% that the country is maintaining.

The interest rate was set in October on 3.25%, as a consequence of the rise of 25 points, after eleven months without changes;in order to reduce the inflation and mitigate the effects of the devaluation of the Chilean peso in respect to the dollar.

The economist of the University of Chile, Joseph Ramos, pointed out that the raising in the interest rate to a 3.5% would increase the interest prices to the banks, affecting to the consumers.

Even though the economists’ estimations said that isn’t time to modify the interest rate, the Central Bank didn´t make any statement regarding to this situation.
