Inflation is awake in the rich world, after a forty year hibernation.

There is growing concern about several factors. These include impacts on the cost of living, the inflationary outlook and how governments may tackle inflation. This awakening takes place in a slowing EuroZone economy and the unknown dimension of Quantitative Easing.

This ‘Lunch with Barry’ session will explore today’s inflationary and its implications.
