Higher inflation is here to keep, in accordance to veteran investment strategist David Roche, who described the view that larger costs had been momentary as “most unlikely.”
Speaking to CNBC Pro Talks on Wednesday, Roche — who accurately forecast the demise of the Soviet bloc, the autumn of the Berlin Wall and the worldwide monetary disaster of 2008 — disagreed with these economists who imagine the present spike in inflation is transient.
It comes as markets eagerly await Thursday’s U.S. client worth index for May to assess the extent and longevity of the inflation surge, and the probability that the U.S. Federal Reserve could have to start conversations about tapering down its financial stimulus program.
Here’s why Roche, president and world strategist at Independent Strategy, thinks larger inflation is a longer-term phenomenon.
