Inflation – What to Watch – Supply Side vs Demand Side
Play • 35 min

Derek goes beyond the headlines to look under the hood of the labor market, jobs, and unemployment. Plus, he reviews the container shipping issues and port delays, semiconductors now delayed over 20 weeks. Finally, he discusses whether the government stimulus for a drop in demand might have miscalculated the recession. Instead, what if it’s a supply side issue where falling supply and rising prices is the regime? Both demand shock and supply shock are covered so you can talk to your friends about it.
