Description

Steve Forbes, Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Magazine, Chairman of the Board of its parent company, and former presidential candidate, joined Jerry to talk about the rising risk of inflation. Steve is the only person to win US Steel’s Crystal Owl award for economic forecasting. He untethers his inner owl for us this week on the question of inflation. Neither a perma-hawk nor a perma-dove, and certainly no Chicken Little, Steve is currently concerned about the inflation outlook and the value of the dollar.
