Morgan Stanley on sticky US inflation: “more worried about 2024 than about 2023”

An analyst at Morgan Stanley Investment Management is worried about persistent US inflation:

  • “I’m more worried about 2024 than I am about 2023”
  • “Right now, the monthly year-over-year inflation numbers are coming down, but that’s going to get tougher next year. The bar is going to get harder, and a time when the Fed is still pressing on this 2% goal, I see that as a tough thing to overcome.”

As for US equities, though:

  • the election could delay a selloff, with excessive stimulus taking hold in Q4 of ’24

I posted yesterday on South Korean inflation:

South Korea’s economy is often seen as a bellwether for the global economy. That doesn’t necessarily extend to inflation, but if it does … yeah sticky indeed.
