This spending is reflected in the profitability of the companies which is looking to expand with the business boom and try to enhance their presence in the market, which of course requires a larger number of employees who will be paid salaries and then can spend this money on their daily lives and so on.

All of that going in the interest of increasing demand for goods and services, which drives their prices to rise, which means high inflation rates, so when the central banks start to hike interest rates in the light of moderate rise in inflation means that rebalancing the economy, which mean the economic growth will became more stable and more solid.
