My thoughts are:

- watch earnings inflation as well as the various price indexes. A sustained inflation increase needs earnings to go up as well as prices
- assuming* central banks (eventually) try to stop it, I expect withdrawal of QE / interest rate increases to rapidly reduce inflation since there is so much debt about

But I'm just guessing really, like everyone else.
