PODCAST | Is raising rates the best tool to lower local inflation?
PSG Wealth's Adriaan Pask explains what is needed to manage the different causes of inflation
Most central banks around the world have steadily increased their interest rates in the past year to combat inflation levels caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

In this podcast PSG Wealth CIO Adriaan Pask explains the difference between demand- and supply-side inflation and the tools needed to manage the different causes of inflation.
