TIPS spreads are worse than I thought…

Sorry to disappoint the all the Chicken Littles out there about inflation, but this COVID depression just might be hanging around for a while, or morph into something entirely new of an ominous nominal sort.

It was just the post before last that I complimented the Fed too… Oh well. I guess I can’t win them all.
