Janet Yellen on inflation

In the last week during an interview with CNBC, Janet Yellen, U.S. Treasury Secretary, commented on the Russian vs Ukraine geopolitical situation & highest inflation over the last 4 decades of history. 

“We’re likely to see another year in which 12-month inflation numbers remain very uncomfortably high. The situation in Ukraine has exacerbated inflation and upcoming inflation reports will show “further evidence of an impact on U.S. inflation of Putin’s war on Ukraine”, Yellen added.
