On the heels of a global pandemic, “inflation” is the hottest word in modern day economics. To fight back, the Fed rolled out its largest rate hike since 1994. Add in a slowdown in economic growth, a reduction in demand and consumer confidence, and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine dramatically influencing the energy sector, and the question becomes obvious: Will inflation derail the U.S. economy?
In this episode of Wescott’s Market and Economic Outlook series, our Chief Investment Officer, Mark McCarron, and our Chief Operating Officer, Carrie Delgott, talk about the Fed’s aggressive plan to fight inflation, the repricing of the bond and equities markets, and Wescott’s strategy to build portfolios that weather inflation.
