As the U.K. and the U.S. begin to administer the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccines to citizens who need it the most, it might be tempting to assume the light at end of the tunnel is closer than it appears. Tematica Research’s Chief Macro Strategist Elle Hawkins isn’t sure a vaccine will be a fast fix for our badly bruised economy, as she discusses here with Spark’s Jim Wiandt and the Daily Dirtnap’s Jared Dillian at our recent Spark Disruptors virtual conference.

Though Hawkins says she hopes she’s wrong, she wonders if the market is getting “ahead of itself” as inoculations begin at home and abroad.

Watch Hawkins and Dillian’s full panel, “The Election and Your Portfolio,” from our event on 11/11/20 here and stay tuned for more highlights on Spark.

This post is part of “Disruptors 2020 Election Week” on Sparknetwork.com, in which we’re featuring highlights from our recent Spark Disruptors event that touched on Joe Biden’s historic win, its effect on the economy, and what it means for an America that has never been more ideologically divided and hobbled by inequity. Stay tuned for more highlights throughout the month of December.
