When "Peak Inflation" Seems Like a Myth

Real VisionMay 12, 2022
Keeping with the prevailing theme, the U.S producer price index for April came in at a red-hot, consensus-forecast-beating year-over-year reading of 11%, yet another indication that inflation persists. Reflecting the impact of the Federal Reserve’s late hawkishness, if not its recent rate hikes, U.S. mortgage rates jumped again this week to 5.3%, the highest since July 2009. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note slipped below 2.9% on flight-to-safety buying. Nevertheless, as Imran Lakha notes, “The move in bond yields has been wild this year. The total return in bonds hasn’t been this bad in decades.” Lakha, the founder of Options Insight, joins Real Vision’s Ash Bennington for today’s Daily Briefing to discuss how tighter monetary policy is impacting financial markets. Meanwhile, with developments in the cryptocurrency market putting the word “contagion” back in circulation, Raoul Pal drops in for a flash update about recent price action across asset classes.

This Revolution Will Be Peaceful and Prosperous
Working from home offers employees more daily flexibility, less time commuting, greater job satisfaction, the opportunity to save money, and the ability to boost productivity. Recent data suggest the “hybrid” model combines benefits of working from home with those of going to the office, with an average productivity increase of 5%. And both employees and employers favor it. According to Nicholas Bloom, professor of economics at Stanford University, not only is remote work here to stay. But workers are likely to quit their jobs if they’re told to return to the office full time. In a far-ranging conversation, Bloom and Jim Bianco, founder and president of Bianco Research, talk about what work-from-home means for the redesign of office space, management, the real estate market, and cultural diversity. It’s one of the most fascinating prevailing trends with abundant implications, and it remains underexplored. Bloom and Bianco tread new ground here. Recorded on May 2, 2022.
