Donald Kohn, senior fellow in Economic Studies at Brookings and a former vice chair of the Federal Reserve Board, joins David Dollar to explore a range of issues on inflation in the U.S., including how the COVID-19 pandemic and the macro response to it have contributed to inflation, the role of monetary and fiscal policy in addressing it, and how inflation affects trade and exchange rates. They end with some policy ideas for the Biden administration.
