Vantage Point - Air Pocket
Welcome to the latest edition of Vantage Point, our quarterly economic and market outlook.

Meanwhile, inflation continues to surprise to the upside in a number of countries.

Vantage Point - Dialing down
Welcome to the latest edition of Vantage Point. While most of our scenarios still center on the economic disruption the virus has caused, in our view the balance between aggregate demand and aggregate supply will determine the outlook for growth, employment and inflation.
Three of our four forecast scenarios make different assumptions about these underlying economic issues which imply different outcomes for the balance of aggregate demand and supply and, by implication, inflationary pressure. Our final scenario is a China focused slowdown that would turn into something more serious than what is currently being priced in.
