MacroBrew - The Covid 19 Endgame Part II: Inequality

Covid-19 has exacerbated income inequality, which could slowly build to big surprises in politics and as a result dramatically impact markets.

  • As the world learns to live with Covid-19, it’s bringing about structural changes
  • Covid-19 has clearly exacerbated income inequality, a big deal both politically and economically - it’s something that builds up slowly but can lead to big surprises in politics and as a result dramatically impact markets.
  • Inequality could give rise to greater social unrest unless governments focus more on income redistribution policies, such as taxes.

In this episode of our Fireside Chats series we’ll be talking with Andrew Ticehurst from Economics and Jim McCafferty our Joint Head of APAC Equity Research on the COVID endgame and why despite policy makers good intentions it could lead to even greater inequality.
