The question is how much and for how long...


Certainly, some inflation is to be expected coming out of a pandemic, given all of the pent-up demand and savings. Fiscal and monetary policy have certainly contributed to this, but they aren't the only factor. Shortages of things like semiconducters have contributed as well, due to supply-line disruptions during the pandemic. Some transitory inflation is to be expected. I could see 4-6% inflation for a few years. But I think the Carter comparisons (13.5% inflation in 1980) here are farfetched. The Fed does have powerful tools at its disposal. All this liquidity they've provided they can also withdraw, which could cool things off quickly. I think its more important to achieve firm, sustainable post-pandemic economic growth before we panic about future inflation.
