English term or phrase:artificially low prices
First, the price explosion for agricultural commodities has resulted in an inflation problem in China. In December, the inflation rate was 6.5% y-o-y – the highest level since 1996. Alongside food prices, state regulated prices for electricity and gasoline also increased. The end of the road has probably not yet been reached here. This is underscored by the current energy shortage, which illustrates that the utilities cannot or do not want to supply the volumes required at the **artificially low prices**. Above and beyond that, the Chinese central bank (People's Bank of China – PBoC) is also attempting to curb inflation. It now describes its policy as "tight", after "prudent".
Come potrei renderlo nel contesto? Sarà la stanchezza ma anche l'intera frase mi risulta un po' ostica. Grazie
