Stop Inflation Now!

Alan Partis | January 24, 2010

Inflation.  That word is one that strikes fear in the hearts of many by its mere mention.  It is axiomatic that the prevailing economic condition, whether good or bad, has a big impact on all our lives and influences everything from where we go for vacations (if we go anywhere at all), how we shop, how we vote, and, for many, even how well we sleep.  It was not so many years ago that our lives were very negatively impacted by inflation rates that topped 10%.  Even inflation rates above 5% have proven to be very disruptive.
