An occasional sampling of what’s catching the eye of investment professionals at Landaas & Company

With reports of inflation at 40-year highs, a university economist writing in Barron’s notes how heavily price increases have been influenced by extraordinary items such as energy and cars. The headline for the article: “Today’s Inflation Won’t Be Solved By the Fed.”

In The Wall Street Journal, columnist Jason Zweig examines market sentiments leading up to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, based on expectations of what the Federal Reserve will do about interest rates. He notes how wildly forecasts shifted with the aggressions. He observes that unlike professional investors, individual investors don’t have to act on their forecasts — they don’t even need forecasts. “Hasty decisions are often wrong,” Zweig writes, “and big hasty decisions almost always are.”

For investors concerned about the economic effects of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, The New York Times notes the relatively minor significance Russia and Ukraine play in the global marketplace. “Russia is incredibly unimportant in the global economy except for oil and gas,” the article quotes a Harvard economist saying. “It’s basically a big gas station.”
