Jeremy Siegel, Russell E. Palmer Professor Emeritus of finance at Wharton School, has shared his viewpoint about various markets that he believes will attract investors in 2022. Siegel’s research mainly focuses on financial markets, demographics, macroeconomics, and long-run asset returns. 

He said that for the future gold is not a good option for investing and stressed, how the younger generation is considering Bitcoin as a substitute for gold. 

He also suggested that the investors should look to invest in emerging markets, which are commodity-sensitive. 

He further discussed inflation and raised many concerns. He described that “The fed and the fiscal authorities have overdone it, especially the Fed on liquidity”. The professor concluded by saying that “They are far behind the curve that we have a lot of inflation that is embedded in”. 

He excepts fed to hike many times, then what is expected by the market.
