Will the global supply chain process lead to stagflation?

Graham Watson

22nd September 2021

Nouriel Roubini raises the spectre of stagflation - which students and their parents - might have to look up.

However, it's a phenomenon associated with the supply-side shocks of the 1970s and implies sluggish growth, high inflation, and led eventually to rising unemployment too.

He identifies a number of things likely to precipitate this, stemming from shocks to the global supply chain and wonders how things are going to play out as a consequence.

If you don't want to know the score...look away now!
