A few hot(ish) US inflation prints and the market has become spooked about how easily the Federal Reserve can get back to its 2% target. In this latest episode of The Weekly Briefing from Capital Economics, Group Chief Economist Neil Shearing discusses whether those fears are justified and tells David Wilder what to expect from the coming week’s meetings from the Fed and the Bank of Japan. 
He also talks TikTok, putting congressional efforts to ban the video app in the broader context of a fracturing global economy. 

 Plus, an exclusive clip from our recent client briefing about Russia's presidential election explains why its economy has proven so resilient to sanctions and outlines what to expect from another six years of Vladimir Putin.
