Economist David Rosenberg suggests hyperinflation warnings are irrational.
The longtime bear, known for his contrarian views, blames rising prices on Covid-19-induced supply side shocks. According to Rosenberg, it’s wrong to assume the impact will cripple the economy and feed into runaway inflation.
“I’m actually rolling my eyes over the suggestion,” the president of Rosenberg Research told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Monday. “It’s totally ridiculous.”
Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey is one of the latest corporate executives to sound the alarm on runaway inflation. He pushed out the warning last Friday on Twitter.
Hyperinflation is going to change everything. It’s happening.
