Just a thought, but HM's Government could actually be paying for these coronavirus adverts in Dirt etc.

They are advertising on TV and printed posters - pretty much everywhere. No way they are getting it all for free and we would have heard about it if they had requisitioned the ads. And frankly, even when the government does requisition something they still pay a fair cost for it. They reached a deal with all the private hospitals for all their spare beds - no doubt the "requisition" word was used but not needed - and the private hospitals are going to be paid "cost price" so they are not out of pocket.

Wouldn't be surprised if Bids is earning a few quid for these ads. Then again, maybe they donated them knowing the PR would be substantial.

Good point @sectornitad my follow up question is this then - why haven't the government used FM20?

Interesting post from Yardeni. I tend to agree too.

My biggest fear is high inflation at the moment and 'the great rebalancing' makes a ot of sense. Do you really want a 1% bond in a 3% inflationary environment? No thank you.

Now the negative affect to us is that the cost of equity also goes up... so a fund raise to see us to revenues would be welcome soon imo.

no way is inflation on the immediate horizon. We are witnessing unprecedented, rapid global demand destruction. Everything we are seeing being done by governments is to keep us from slipping in to a deep depression. All the new money being pumped in is merely taking the place of cancelled demand.

In the medium to long term (3+ years) we may witness a spike in inflation, but then it will be welcomed as inflation kills debt.

Beware the "hyper inflation" shills. They were dead wrong after all the QE following the financial crisis and they will be dead wrong now too.

It's a fair counter @sectornitad but this is additive.

Demand is still there atm imo... just a lack of supply and inability to access the goods and services.

Inflation has been the missing piece for years - helicopter money and the modern monetary theory is in full flow now - no one knows how it'll pan out in all honesty and history is not a good indicator in this instance.

There is so much difference between now and inflations of the 70s and Germany 1920s etc. Most importantly we are fast becoming a cashless society - back in the day once **cash** was in circulation it was very hard to take it back out. With digital currency and a digitised banking system if policy needs to reduce the velocity of money (which is the true catalyst of inflation) then it is fairly straight forward. Plus the monetary and regulatory environment (plenty of interest rate headroom from zero and new capital controls on banks) means that the credit tap can be, literally, shut off over night if need be.

People have been banging on about inflation for years. Usually because they want to sell you gold :)
