Economist Mohamed El-Erian said inflation has yet to reach it’s peak. Appearing on CBS’s “Face The Nation” Sunday, the Allianz Chief Economic Advisor said he fears inflation may reach nine percent.

“We got here because we got a combination of things happening,” said El-Erian. “All these things came together and are now feeding this inflation. The price of nearly everything is going up and making us feel really insecure.”

This comes after inflation hit 8.6 percent in May, the highest since December of 1981. El-Erian said their was hope it would be temporary and inflation was partially avoidable, but argued the federal reserve mischaracterized the issue and fell behind.

Meanwhile, during an interview with CNN Sunday, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers disagreed with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s recent claims a recession is not in the works.

“I look at what’s happening in the stock and bond markets,” voiced Summers. “I look at where consumer sentiment is. I think their is certainly a risk of recession in the next year. I think given where we’ve gotten to, it’s more likely than not that we’ll have a recession within the next two years.”

However, even the usual Biden critic took a jab at the GOP, claiming so-called “Banana Republicans” who allegedly fanned the flame of the Jan. 6 protests, are partly at fault for the nation’s economic crisis.
