The prospect of inflationary expectations as lockdowns continue

In recent days I’m coming to the view that governments are driven by a political imperative to value all lives equally, and will NOT change tack till their societies almost collapse – which can take 4-5 months at the least. In the meanwhile things can get worse on the debt front.

This is a post to keep track of this issue, particularly the views of others – for ultimately, the market can turn rapidly (as we saw with the crash in stock prices a month ago).

ADDENDUM 26 JUNE 2022

Here was a tweet from 6 April 2020 from my main Twitter account (luckily archived!) where I foresaw inflation from lockdowns.

Inflation has taken longer than I anticipated, but it is here, and almost entirely from lockdown effects.

    Inflation : no way with a demand collapse for last 12 months in India and more so after the unwise lock down.There is a fear psychosis with investors in India ( unless they are in NAMO’s protected group). More likely a hard recession.
