Checking in on Inflation
We dedicated this week’s episode of Grow Money Business to inflation. A few years ago inflation was incredibly low. Then all of a sudden (aka after $6 trillion in money printing) the numbers jumped to a 30 year high. Since then the fed has tightened interest rate policy and driven down inflation steadily over the last year and a half. So where are we now? Join us as we dive into the current numbers, why we need to pay attention, what we can expect, a possible recession in the future, and more.
