Inflation in the age of supply disruptions

Tuesday 05 April 2022 | 17:00 - 18:00 | Webinar

This session has been organised by CFA UK's Future Of Money working group

Since the global financial crisis of 2007/8, central banks across advanced economies had maintained bearish views on long term growth and inflation for a long time. Nevertheless, since the second half of the last year, many of them have gone through a process of revising their views.

Beside growth prospects, there emerged issues of supply constraints from multiple contexts: Geopolitical developments, COVID19, and the climate change. In addition, Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has transformed the psychological landscape of globalized economies. This session will ask the question, in this time of uncertainty, where is inflation heading to?

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.
