Lucas Herrenbrueck interviewed on inflation concerns in post-COVID economy
According to Herrenbrueck, "Inflation conjures up negative connotations for many people, but low levels of it are often a sign of economic growth".
“Inflation, being a little bit higher as we are recovering from the pandemic is just normal. It’s just not something to react to; it’s like seeing it rain in Vancouver."
Herrenbrueck's research interests include macroeconomics, monetary economics, and economic theory. Earlier this year, he published a paper in the Journal of Mathematical Economics examining how a pandemic-induced recession can actually boost asset prices.
