Biggest Tailrisks in 2022 #stocks #inflation #Fed #Bloomberg #economy

The main risks going into 2022 remains inflation by a wide margin, according to a Bloomberg survey last week. More persistent inflation would not only impact companies and consumers, but it is also expected to force the Fed and other central banks to act by withdrawing stimulus at a faster pace. There is also a growing consensus that as we adapt to the pandemic situation, supply chain disruptions, which have caused a steep rise in inflation, could ease. The pandemic continues to weigh as one of the main risks. Other risks worth a mention are a slowing down of the Chinese economy, as well as risks of geopolitical conflicts evolving into wars.
