Inflation is one of the most discussed but also most misunderstood topics in finance and economics. Considering the number of people who have devoted their careers to predicting, generating, or controlling inflation only to fail at doing so, if there’s one thing we know for certain, it's that there is no consensus about what causes it. In this episode of "Investor Tutorials", Jamie McDonald, former portfolio manager at Point72, breaks down what we do and don’t know about this mysterious economic force and examines inflation’s often-cited causes, different forms, and its consequences, whether they be good, bad, or ugly.
