Rising prices is causing shockwaves through the global economy. It also has the potential to start a party to which no one wants an invite: stagflation.

In this show economist Keith Wade takes us back to the 1970s to tell the story of stagflation and the serious issues it can cause the economy and investors.  Meanwhile strategist Sean Markowicz reveals the assets that perform best, and worst, during periods of stagflation.

Running order:

00:41 - Part one: The conditions that are ripe for stagflation

11:21 - Part two: How economic cycles affect investment returns

17:03 - Part three: What might investors do if stagflation strikes?
