Facing The Future: No One Should be Surprised Inflation Followed COVID Emergency Spending

This week on Facing the Future, we hear from two authors – Howard Adler and Alex Pollock – who have written a new book called ‘Surprised Again: The COVID Crisis and the New Market Bubble’. The book explores how for the 2nd time in our young century, the federal government’s response to an economic crisis had some unintended consequences that we are all paying for. This time, it was the multi-trillion dollar COVID relief packages in two administrations that have significantly contributed to the higher inflation we are all feeling.
