The market’s recent selloff is in focus. Can the Fed be seen as slightly accommodative while still getting a handle on inflation, or is that just as impossible as our title? What are the effects of the war in Ukraine and Chinese lockdowns on inflation, and how big are they as building blocks of the current wall of worry? We also discuss the parts o…
 
Will the Fed do little, or is under too much political pressure to just talk about raising rates to fight inflation? Is China’s “zero Covid” policy really an inflation fighting tool?
