Bloomberg: Supply constraints are driving inflation

Prices are rising all over the world at a pace that hasn’t been seen in decades, and central banks have responded by lifting rates, writes Bloomberg.

And according to a Federal Bank analysis, supply factors account for more than half of the current level of inflation, while demand explains only about a third. 

“The latest readings suggest the US economy is entering a period of low growth and elevated inflation.”

Bloomberg concludes, “Supply chain stress is off its peak, but a return to pre-Covid norms may take time.”
