Paul Wankmueller, CMT and Jannis Meindl discuss the lack of fixed asset spending in old economy sectors and the implications for the Fed as well as the economy as a whole. As output gets constrained by a lack of capital formation, the two also talk about the inflation outlook and current market expectations. Macro Corner Chart Booklet accessible: here.
