As Hank Williams Jr sang, "The interest is up, and the stock market's down.". In this Part 3 of a 3 part mini-series on current market conditions, Josh and Jay discuss the top of mind topic for most consumers right now, inflation. From home goods, construction materials, energy, groceries, transportation, fuel, gas, traveling, heck, even Chick-Fil-A, consumers are dealing with rising costs across a variety of goods and services. Some companies are combating that with what's called "shrink-flation" but even so, the inflation numbers being published are still at historic highs. The hosts discuss and explain how inflation is actually a measure of the rate of change and how core inflation is different from the overall inflation rate. They also discuss the similarities and differences to what America experienced in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Lastly, the hosts discuss "momentum investing" and how that might be a potential tool for investors to participate in those industries that are doing well in this economy.
