Q: Some economists suggest that inflation could be persistently higher after the pandemic. What are your thoughts on this? Are you concerned about El Salvador adopting bitcoin?

A: The point that these economist make has a lot to do with the degree of stimulus rolled out to tackle the pandemic and that there might be overheating because of that. I think that the US and EZ economic situations are very different. Although there will be some spillovers as a result of the Biden plan, but of too small a magnitude to make much of a difference.

Q: Was there some divergence with respect to the balance of risks? Did any GC member feel that the risks are tilted to the upside or downside?
