Are We In A Recession Now? We're not sure, but we're definitely feeling it! Fed Chair Jerome Powell has been leading the charge against inflation, with interest rate hikes and reverse repos. And while we don't know if this will cause a recession, we can see that it's definitely taking its toll on the economy. Inflation 2021 saw a surge in prices—and 2022 looks like it'll be even worse.
These rising prices are motivating people to spend more money on food and gas, which leads to higher demand for those products. That in turn increases the cost of producing them, causing prices to rise even further. That means that you have to spend more money just to buy things like food and gas—which means that you have less money left over for other things like saving for retirement or buying a house. It's important to remember that this is not a negative thing; it's just an adjustment as we move into a new economic era!
