Ted Bauman, the renowned editor of Banyan Hill Publishing, recently explained the inflation outcomes expected in the near future. Though Bauman voices for value-based investments than price-based ones, in the short term, even prices can help people to earn greater profits from the market. For instance, the price of bitcoin is surging over $11,000, but the value does not seem to be equaling it. Similarly, the U.S. corporations have reported second-highest Shiller PE ratio, contrary to its value. This is where consumer price inflation is coming to the center stage of the investments and other savings options available in the market. Follow Ted Bauman at stocktwits.com
Bauman says that while many people are complaining about the consumer price inflation, to ensure a healthy economy by balancing the economic growth and liquidity, there is a need for inflation. While many believe that central banks can simply print and create money, he asserts that they create cash reserves for the banking systems of the country. This helps the commercial banks to create money by generating loans against such reserves. If there are no such loans, like no consumption or investment, it is not producing any real money to the economy of the country, and the market does not feel the pressure of inflation.
Ted Bauman observes that the upcoming tax cuts are expected increase inflation without creating any investment. Considering the wage increase demand by the workers of the U.S. corporations, it is expected to add wage inflation and thus price inflation at the end. Bauman also sees the possibility of the Fed frequently raising the interest rates compared to prior-tax cut period. Due to political pressure, these increases could be minimal, and fixed-income investment options provide poor returns compared to rising living expenses. When the CFPB is scrapped, it is expected to create a condition of reckless lending, and that would add more money to the economy – ultimately leading to shooting up of inflation.
