    The Source Of Discoordination And Inflation

    Today, the global economy lacks its usual order. Each month brings a new shortage that is disrupting supply chains and driving up prices. In short, the right goods are not being delivered at the right time and place. Will examines the drivers of spacial and temporal "discoordination" to determine how investors should allocate assets in this challenging environment.

    The Troubling Signal In US Savings

    In recent months, the US net national savings rate—the share of income unconsumed—has ticked lower. It may seem a small concern as the Federal Reserve prepares to taper, but if the rate of genuine savings continues to fall over coming quarters, it will be a danger signal both for asset markets and for US economic growth.

    Webinar: China’s Policy Trajectory

    China’s leaders capitalized on the country’s post-Covid boom by pursuing reforms that further Xi Jinping’s political goals.

    Building The Bubble-O-Meter

    Charles is somewhat tired of reading general descriptions of US equities being in a bubble, with little serious empirical backing to support the assertion. In this piece, he sets out to build an objective tool to answer the bubble, or not, question. Spoiler alert: he thinks investors would do well to re-assess their hedges.

    Persistent Inflation Takes Over

    Some may hope that supply bottlenecks quickly ease and the price-hike scare of 2021 soon fades, but that is not the story of the latest US inflation reading. In short, US inflation is now persistent and the Federal Reserve will soon have to address this reality head-on.

    Energy And The Euro’s Exchange Rate

    It will come as news to no one that energy prices and exchange rates are intimately connected. Historically, over the last 20 years, the euro has tended to be positively correlated with the price of oil, while the broad US dollar exchange rate has tended to be inversely correlated. So, over the first half of 2008 as the price of oil surged to a record high, the euro hit its all-time high against the US dollar. And in 2014 as the oil price...

    Labor And The Age Of Shortages

    The leader of the British Labour Party, Keir Starmer, missed a political trick at his party conference in late September when he failed to quote Labour’s late deputy leader, Aneurin Bevan, who told the party’s 1945 conference, “This island is made mainly of coal and surrounded by fish. Only an organizing genius could produce a shortage of coal and fish at the same time.”

    Webinar: Global Investment Roundtable, October 2021

    In Thursday's Global Investment Roundtable, Louis argued that shortages of everything from microchips to natural gas are structural in nature and augur a radical change in the investing environment.

    A Temporary Respite

    Going into 4Q21, a worry for Will had been that asset prices faced the prospect of two tightening moves to US liquidity. Yet, with Congress now punting a debt-ceiling reckoning to December, this could, in turn, delay the Fed’s taper announcement to December, or even January. Thus, yesterday’s deal on Capitol Hill could allow temporary relief on the liquidity front.

    What, Me Worry?

    There is a growing drumbeat of commentary arguing that today’s shortages of everything from microchips to natural gas must end in an inflationary blowout and a return to the lascivious 1970s. Anatole thinks that today’s shortages are likely to correct relatively quickly, and for investors the coming period is more likely to resemble the 1950s.

    The Price Of Policy

    Wherever you look, energy prices are shooting up, and shortages abound. The global economy, it seems, is in the grip of a full-blown energy crisis. Drill down, and it appears this is not one crisis, but many. The effects—worsening shortages and surging prices—are much the same in differentregions. But the immediate causes of the crunch seem to differ widely.

    Fixing Italy

    The results of this weekend's municipal elections in Italy look to have buttressed Mario Draghi’s national unity government, which is half way through an ambitious overhaul of core institutions that have failed the country for decades. With 70% of Italians favoring Draghi’s initiative, and no general election due until mid-2023, the betting is that he gets to finish the job.

    A Crabwise ‘Recoupling’

    The Biden administration continues its crabwise efforts to craft a China strategy balancing national security and economic interests. The challenge is that Biden wants to maintain the basic stance established by Donald Trump—“strategic competition”—while satisfying a wider range of interest groups and setting more realistic policy targets.

    Strategy Monthly: The Macro Risks Of Xi Jinping’s Agenda

    China’s leaders sought to use the country’s post-Covid boom to press ahead with reforms aimed at furthering Xi Jinping’s political goals. The resulting property slowdown, China Evergrande’s financial troubles and the flight out of internet stocks have hit both economic growth and financial markets. Despite this, no overt U-turn is likely.
