Don’t Underestimate the Power of This Recovery—Or the Magnitude of Change Ahead, Says Grant

We may be going back to 2019 practices regarding where we work, eat and travel but make no mistake about it, says Michael Grant in a Global/Long Short Strategies perspective released today, equity investors are not going back to 2019.

In an often non-consensus view, Grant comments on interest rates, inflation, reflation, the Fed and a future where “debt does not matter.”

“An expanded and invasive state supported by higher taxation, higher public spending and more restrictive regulation? We can think of no examples in the past where this has led to improved corporate profitability.”
