In our economy we’re dealing with intransigent inflation that doesn’t look like it’s going to disappear any time soon. I chat with global macro-economics expert, Gordon Long, to unpack some of these inflationary trends and discuss how we can better understand them. The global economy is slowing, and we’re experiencing crises as rates increase. Long points out how inflation ultimately turns things into assets that you never formally perceived as assets; essentially, there is potential in the unexpected. Tune in for more insight.
