Lisa Shalett on CNBC: Economy Can’t Reach 2% Inflation Without Pain

Wealth Management — April 3, 2023

On CNBC, Wealth Management’s Lisa Shalett explains why the economy is unlikely to get back down to 2% inflation without some pain for companies and investors. The reason: While markets are up on stronger-than-expected economic data, falling inflation means companies are losing pricing power and face a “profits recession,” even if the economy stays positive, creating a significant downside to earnings.
