Quick Facts About Inflation

So what is inflation? Basically it’s when the price of goods and services shoot up, causing your money to lose value. You may have felt this from purchasing eggs, as they went from $3 dollars to $5 but your paycheck isn’t going up as fast.

What’s a solution to inflation? When inflation creeps in, it means there’s too much money floating around, so the feds increase interest rates to hopefully, get Americans to stop spending and reduce the demand. If demand goes down, prices should go down too

What does it mean to increase rates? Increased interest rates means borrowing money becomes more expensive. Think car loan, mortgage, and credit card rates!
