Inflation — a matter of time

The Curious Capitalist asks an interesting question: Is Inflation Coming Back?


Pain was widespread during the Great Recession, but the one bright spot experts and pundits always talked about was the absence of runaway inflation.

“(Inflation) might eventually be a problem, but you have to think of it in phases and over the next year or two it’s not going to be a problem,” Fox said.

Let’s hope that’s the still the tiemtable. The economy — and my bank account — could use a little more cushion before inflation becomes an problem. And you know that eventually it will.
