camera reports for washington. price is full groceries rent another needed items continue to saw. the own, the small shops are particularly hard hit. as they see their customers beginning to treat what were every day purchases as luxuries you can see had the money flows you can seeing when people are not getting the extras when they're getting copy trip coffee instead of capital, you can see it. you can see how they pay if they're paying in coins, be increased in prices, is now being felt at every gas station. and in every grocery store. i just think for a little more careful, i notice it in almost every product. fruits vegetables, which we buy a lot of jelly products. i can't really see anywhere that the prices have gone down. but they've gone up bottlenecks in the
5:03 am
supply chains of distributors. the primary reason and these, and turn the direct result of stopping shortages as a pandemic continues to rage worldwide. at the state, though, the head of the federal reserve insists there's no need for panic. that this is a temporary situation. we will use our tools to support the economy and a strong labor market and to prevent higher inflation from becoming entrenched. it's a similar message coming from the white house, which points to a dropping unemployment rate as evidence that economic recovery is underway and is adamant that the supply chain issue will be resolved. we are well positioned to attack the challenges of prices and costs had on. and that's exactly what the president i and this administration are doing. but republicans continue to blame stimulus measures for overheating the economy. one thing is clear, it's impossible to predict the ongoing economic impact of the ami kron varian serge,
5:04 am
which the nation continues to face. i don't believe we've seen that peak yet here in the united states. the rise in price increases reflect a harsh reality that in the pandemic, it's not just people who get sick, but the economy as well might hannah out his era washington. wising inflation is worry across the world, prices in the world's richest economies are at a 25 year high. that's fueling concerns about a cost of living crisis and increasing pressure on central banks to raise interest rates. the situation is exceptionally bad in turkey, inflation, their climb to a near to decor decade high in december, on the back of a weakening lira. but china is bucking the trend inflation. they're slowing. some economists to predicting an interest rate cough could come soon. lauren's contra cough is a professor of economics, a boston university. he joins us now live from providence in rhode island. good to
5:05 am
have you with us professor. so our rising procedure all to do with a pandemic of supply chain issues, a mismatch between demand and supply. well, that's certainly a big part of it, but there's also fewer suppliers associated with a whole pandemic. you know, you got a big city in, in the like new york there many restaurants are close. so the, there's more monopolization, if you like, of industry at this point. if you are suppliers of a wants of commodities and services, and then you have this other aspect, which is that the entire fiscal trajectory in the u. s. and other developing countries developed countries, sorry, is really out of whack. the fiscal policies unsustainable new us. we are, we're facing, if you look at the debt that's on the books as well as the debt, that's off the books, we have really a path of, of spending on the government. they can't be sustained at all by the taxes we're
5:06 am
way short. so when prices rise up, what happens is that the debt that's outstanding is watered down a real terms, and that's like a tax increase on the public. they're holding the debt, where they're holding is what are down terms of its purchase power. and the government gets implicitly, it's also hook of paying back in real terms what it borrowed. so some aspect of this is the fiscal, you know, is the adjustment of the 2 and the natural, just lam, he cut taxes to 0. i take that, take that. so i thought experiment, what would happen? would people be, go out and spend and prices will go up. and a feedback effect here would be to water down when the government has to pay. so that would be enough fiscal adjustment to be like a hidden tax increase. ok, so our interest rate rises in the near term. now inevitable won't put that made
5:07 am
particularly full emerging and developing economies that have high you, i stole of debt. yeah. put them in a, in a bad position if they have to roll. busy over the dead and, you know, on the other hand, if, if, if price, you know, the prices are going up, or watering down what they owe to, till to lenders of a bar and dollars. now they have to pay back and fuel hotdogs, if you like, because prices have risen. so the inflation is kind of a of a mixed bag for them. and in terms of may be more expensive to borrow in the future depending, but they really gain does not loss on the fact that the inflation is worn down. what they really oh, is this as the white house and the, the fed a saying a temporary situation, all of the days of cheap money when a truly over now well, i think inflation can get kind of a wind of its own or mind of its own if,
5:08 am
if we've got millions of businesses or setting prices independent, what jerome power the floor, joe biden says they should do. and if everybody gets it in their head crisis by being said, 10 percent increase by other people, they're going to raise their prices by 10 percent. because because companies don't like to raise prices every 2 minutes, they want to do it periodically. and they want to get a bit of a head of the game. they don't want to find out a year from now. they didn't really should raise prices more substantially. so that's part of the dynamic here, that inflation can kind of take often its own and be very hard to stop, unless you really put the economy into a severe recession. which is what happened under volker, in the early eighty's. really good still to professor money vaccinate lawrence carter. cough that in providence rhode on it,
