Erin Miles, Khia Kurtenbach
Many of the key markers of an inflation-driven bear market bottom are still missing today — little real economic weakening, few signs the central bank is ready to move to easing, and, as of yet, not much repricing of equities beyond the direct drag from rising interest rates.
October 11, 2022
Bob Prince
Strong growth and a self-reinforcing, high level of inflation spurred the sharpest tightening in 60 years. To date, this tightening has led to weaker asset markets, but has had far less impact on economies. As Co-CIO Bob Prince illustrates, the next stage of the tightening cycle is likely to be an economic slowdown as policymakers work to bring inflation back to target.
