Over the last few months, inflation has hit most of us in a hard way. Home prices and loan interests rates are up in a major way and consumer prices went up 9.1% over the last year. Much of that rise has been more visible in the last few months, with companies seemingly making huge markups at the time when gas almost doubled, with that and the war in Ukraine as justification. But what about now? Prices on gas are falling, but consumer goods are not.
Is there any way we can keep this narrative from being the driving force in future inflation? Many national companies have been recently implicated in price gouging, seeing record profits over the last couple of years, so why is it allowed? What would you like to see done in these matters, or do you still think supply and demand will fix everything in due time?
