Is Now the Time To Prepare for Inflation?

Both the Great Recession and coronavirus pandemic have managed to keep the lid on key measures of consumer and producers’ prices.

But it probably won’t be like that for long.

While Zimbabwe-styled hyperinflation isn’t in the cards anytime soon, the potential for higher overall inflation is here; especially considering the Fed’s latest policy changes and the likely rebound from the pandemic. For investors, we’ve gotten too complacent with our low inflation environment.
