Does the government want to solve the inflation problem, or do they need it to stay this way for a bit?

This means that the stock market could roll over and push up the cost of housing—which is one of the primary indicators in the CPI. Interest rates are ultimately defeating ht purpose of what they’re trying to accomplish, and thus, it’s important to protect yourself during this time. Eddy recommends having a proactive investment strategy and paying off debts. In addition, investors should look towards treasuries and annuities to prioritize liquidity in particular.
