Dr. Doom’ Nouriel Roubini warns the era of stagflation is here and central banks are setting a trap in trying to normalize policy

MarketsInsider/Nouriel Roubini/8-9-2022

“The world economy is undergoing a radical regime shift,” he said in an op-ed for Project Syndicate on Tuesday, declaring the end of the Great Moderation, during which economies enjoyed low inflation, high growth, and mild recessions. Those qualities have been the standard for the past few decades, but are reversing into what Roubini dubs as the Great Stagflation: an era of high inflation, low growth, high debt, and the potential for severe recessions.”
