FED'S INFLATION MEASURE HOLDS AT RECORD ANNUAL PACE FOR FOURTH STRAIGHT MONTH

MARK MOBIUS: Well, it's not only supply chain problems, which are very, very big, as you know. But the problem now is personnel costs. Labor costs are going up not only in the U.S., but globally, and I think this is going to be a big, big challenge because more and more of these companies need people to run the companies and actually do the work… It's getting more and more expensive. So you're going to see margins being hit, and of course, with people coming out of China, then they're going to hit higher costs in other parts of the world as well… 

It's not temporary. If you see money supply going up by 30 percent or more, this is not temporary. In the inflation numbers, as you know how I feel about inflation numbers, are not telling the full story. The good news, of course, is technology is making costs in some areas lower. But the reality is that prices are going to go up dramatically as we go forward. There's no question about that in my mind.
