Encore-What You Need to Know About Inflation

Encore – What You Need to Know About Inflation

Inflation continues to be a hot topic. Talk about the price of goods increasing is all over the news. A while back, I had Robert Frick on the show to talk about what we should all know about inflation and how it is impacting us all. Robert Frick is Navy Federal’s corporate economist, the world’s largest credit union serving the military and their families. He provides expertise in economics as it relates to home, auto and consumer lending, credit cards and financial planning. Bob is an expert in personal finance, having worked as an editor at Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine for 15 years, and also is an expert in behavioral economics, or the study of people’s behaviors surrounding money. As we prepare to roll into the New Year, I thought we’d go over inflation one more time to help us financially prepare for next year.
