Are you concerned about inflation speeding up in our economy right now? I definitely am, and so I decided to read a few books about the history of inflation in our economy. Getting a historical context for economic forces helps me prepare for what could happen in the future. It won’t be an exact roadmap, but I like to at least get some knowledge about the possibilities. The Great Inflation and Its Aftermath is a great book covering the biggest inflationary period we’ve had in American history, which happened in the 70s and 80s and was driven by government actions. This episode covers the lessons I learned from the book and how I’m thinking about inflation going forward.
