Wolfers connects vaccination rates to supply chains and inflation issues

November 12, 2021 The Daily Beast

Justin Wolfers says that increasing vaccination rates could help solve inflation and supply chain issues.

“One of the most important things we can do in fact is vaccinating the globe. When people talk about inflation, we’ll talk about supply chain pressures, and no one has a very clear understanding of what that means," Wolfers said. "But one part of that is quite literally manufacturing factories in Asia and all sorts of manufacturing in lower-income countries. They get a couple of COVID cases and they just shut down for a month."
