Vantage Point: The fear of fear itself
The Roman alphabet has outlived its usefulness – at least as far as labelling the economic recovery is concerned. Having spent six months talking about ‘V’, ‘U’, ‘W’, ‘L’ and even ‘K’-shaped paths, for this edition we have decided to ditch the letters and go back to a simpler classification. The course of the disease remains the single most important determinant of the kind of economic recovery we get, but we now think a simple ‘good’ or ‘bad’ classification covers everything we need to discuss. We cover this reassessment and its impact on markets and investment conclusions in our new Vantage Point.
