NAI Global Chief Economist Warns of Inflation in Latest White Paper
In his latest white paper, “Beware of Inflation”, NAI Global Chief Economist Dr. Peter Linneman questions how it is possible to not have inflation in the U.S. economy when healthcare and commodities prices are rapidly increasing and Federal and State governments are running record deficits. Dr. Linneman examines the impact of CPI increases, the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy, government deficits and other factors that will lead to massive inflation in the U.S. economy.
“How is it possible to have 25% increases in healthcare costs, which account for roughly 17% of GDP, and not have serious inflation?” said Dr. Linneman. “As inflation takes hold, generations that have never witnessed inflation will experience its destructive power. It is essential that [investors] are aware of the damage that inflation can wreak on [their] net investment position.”
The white paper analyzes the impact that inflation will have on commercial real estate, forecasts the direction of interest rates and provides investment and financing strategies for property owners seeking to shield themselves from inflation’s destructive power.
Beware of Inflation assesses the potential destructive power of inflation and its impact on commercial real estate.
This latest white paper follows A Disastrous Decade, Dr. Linneman’s scorecard for the 10 years from mid-2000 through mid-2010, reviewing how the economy has changed over the first decade of the 21st century.
