[Blue Research] The “Day After” series – A possible inflationary cocktail
In the short term, the coronavirus pandemic is clearly likely to mean volatility in inflation figures, given factors pulling in opposite directions. In the longer term, and after four decades of low inflation across most economies, a new high-inflation regime may happen.
