What did we discuss? Well, #inflation of course!

I prepared some slides for the show which I'm happy to present in this thread.

Given the rising concerns and thoughts about the links between expansionary monetary policy, money supply, and inflation, I wanted to share a few opinions on the topic of inflation and the velocity of money:

#inflation #deflation #moneysupply #economics
1) M2 money supply is up about 25% from last year’s levels, which indicates both the massive money creation and the high degree of expansionary monetary policy that was needed to help stabilize America’s economy and financial markets after the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis.
2) Typically, there are 2 reasons why money velocity can rise:

1. Rising consumer and business confidence drives higher spending.

2. Rising money velocity (not rising money supply) has historically been a leading indicator of future consumer price inflation.
