We’ve been hearing a lot about inflation in the news, and the government has admitted to a 7.5% inflation rate—the worst a country has seen in the last 40 years. I have David Stryzewski on the show to discuss this topic, and he says that interest rates, inflation, and geopolitical situations will ultimately be the factors that move the markets. It’s an important time to sit down and take account of your finances, and to prepare for the possibility of a stagflationary environment.
