How to profit from fights - Part I

  1. How to profit from fights? A multi-part series.

    One needs to first find fights/fighters, then find a way to benefit from the fights without getting a blow on one's jaw-- This is just a way of speech, and I am positive the reader understands we are not discussing street fights in this thread, but more serious business-type fights.

    I would like to give an example of such fights. Certain countries are fighting inflation, while other countries are fighting debts, but may have been creating inflation. So certain countries are "long inflation", while other countries are shorting the inflation. Let us call it this situation: the inflation fights.


    1. Are there trade ideas that would benefit from the inflation fights?

    2. Could the readers propose other ideas of exiting or looming fights, such as the inflation fights discussed above?
