This is the rate that products and services increase in price over time, lowering the VALUE of the money that we have today. It’s generally thought that the more money gets printed into our economy, the more we devalue the existing currency in circulation, and over time…the more dollars it costs to buy the same thing.
the ROOT CAUSE of inflation seems to be broken down into 3 categories:
1. INCREASED DEMAND.
2. HIGHER PRODUCTION COST
For example, throughout a Labor Shortage – businesses needed to pay MORE to attract new employees. However, to compensate for that increased cost…prices eventually had to RISE…and, over time, that cost gets passed on to you, as the customer.
3. BUILT-IN INFLATION
Third, there’s also a source of inflation known as “Built-In,” because it’s CAUSED by the prices of goods going up, to the point where people need to make more money to pay for them…which begins the cycle all over again.
4. SUPPLY CHAIN BOTTLENECK
The WORST, from all of this…is SHIPPING. See, most businesses rely on imports from other countries…and, often, those items are shipped overseas in large containers that arrive to ports, where they get sorted and sent on trucks to their final destination.
But those SHIPPING CONTAINER COSTS are expected to rise by an average of 126% this year…and, even worse, SPOT RATES of current shipments are 4.5 TIMES HIGHER THAN A YEAR AGO.
Part of that has to due with a shortage of workers capable of handling such a high amount of inventory…and, with increased demand for physical goods…it’s created a “Traffic Jam” of cargo vessels, sometimes waiting weeks at sea to dock…further delaying their arrival, and costing significantly more money to operate.
5. SHADOW INFLATION
This what happens when pay the same price for goods and services…BUT, the QUALITY or QUANTITY has secretly diminished without you knowing.
In MODERATION…. a STEADY, CONSISTENT inflation rate is generally seen as a healthy indicator of our economy, because people know what to expect, businesses can plan accordingly, and it’s slow enough that most of us won’t notice any major change day by day. That’s why the United States tries to aim for as close to 2% annual inflation rate as possible.
The PROBLEM, however, is when inflation begins to eat away at the purchasing power of your money, FASTER than you’re able to make it…and, right now…WAGES simply can’t rise fast enough.
On the ONE HAND: The Federal Reserve believes that the inflation we’re seeing is TRANSITIONARY, caused primarily by supply chain and shipping bottlenecks which TEMPORARILY increase our own costs…but, others believe that it’s a direct result of excessive spending and stimulus packages, leading us closer and closer to a point of no return..
