Macro & Micro Economic Analysis
[Webinar] “Inflation in the advanced economies – are we returning to the 1970s?”
The pickup in the global inflation rate to its highest level since 2008 has led to renewed attention being given to the Great Inflation of the 1970s.
In this webinar, Dr John Greenwood, a well-known monetary economist and famously known as the architect of Hong Kong’s currency peg, will share his unique perspective on the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent inflation. He argues that the current inflation in advanced economies has very little to do with the pandemic, fiscal expansion, supply chain disruptions, energy prices, or even the war in Ukraine.
Dr Greenwood will highlight:
• Cause of inflation
• Reason for the dramatic contrast of inflation problems between the advanced economies
• Why inflation has been persistent (as he predicted), not transitory
• Forecast about the trajectory for inflation in 2022-23
• Whether a US and global recession is inevitable – and when it will occur
This webinar will be moderated by Dr King Au, Executive Director of the Financial Services Development Council (FSDC).
