The real reason inflation is transitory – Tim Ghriskey on 'technological deflation'

Headline CPI inflation surged to 6.2% in October, the highest level since 1990. However, prices are unlikely to stay elevated forever, as technological innovations will create a more cost-efficient economy, said Tim Ghriskey, senior portfolio strategist at Ingalls and Snyder.

“We’re in this technological revolution. I think it’s greater than the industrial revolution from over a century ago. The innovation continues, and we’re going to just continue to see costs come out of companies, and companies being run more efficiently,” Ghriskey told David Lin, anchor for Kitco News. “I think that technological deflationary factor is huge and going to continue.”
