Expect strong but slowing economic growth in 2022

High inflation could persist in 2022, but we’re not returning to the 1970s

Inflation is like chewing gum. It’s sticky and flexible, and you definitely don’t want to step in it. For the past 30 years, investors in developed markets haven’t had to worry much about stepping in it. That changed last summer when COVID-related distortions caused prices for some consumer goods to skyrocket. Today, the biggest questions for investors are how high will it go and how long will it last?

Adding to the uncertainty is that there are two types of inflation. Sticky inflation tends to have longer staying power. Sticky categories include rent, insurance and medical expenses. Flexible inflation — affecting items such as food, energy and cars — has risen much faster in recent months but many believe it likely won’t last.
