The recent increase in US inflation numbers has shocked the stock market and begun a debate about whether an inflationary period is starting. This surge comes while the Joe Biden administration engages in the country’s largest peacetime fiscal stimulus, monetary policy remains highly accommodative, and demand has been pent-up due to social distancing and COVID-19 restrictions.

Join AEI and a distinguished panel of economists for an event evaluating whether there is an immediate inflationary risk to the US economy, the longer-run inflation outlook in light of anticipated demographic changes in China and elsewhere, and what the implications might be for future monetary and fiscal policy.
