In mid-2021, London School of Economics’s Mervyn King, former Governor of the Bank of England, joined the Capitalisn’t podcast and predicted the inflation that we see today. Now he rejoins Capitalisn’t hosts Luigi Zingales and Bethany McLean with a somewhat more optimistic outlook on what may happen next.
