Michael Burry sees higher prices sticking around as geopolitical turmoil combines with blue collar labor shortages to “raise long-term inflation’s floor.”

The founder of Scion Asset Management, whose bet against the housing market before the 2008 financial crisis was immortalized in “The Big Short,” said in a tweet Tuesday that global supply chain restructuring will keep prices elevated. He also posted a link to a Bloomberg story detailing a boom in US factory development.
