Will Our Strong Economy Spike Inflation in 2018?

January 9, 2018

As you know, a lot of predictions are made this time of year – about the economy, the markets, interest rates, inflation, etc. Some forecasters are predicting that 2018 will finally be the year when inflation takes off and returns to higher levels. However, some of these same prognosticators have been saying the same thing for the last several years.

The fact is that the US rate of inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index, has been declining over the last 25 years. Most prices are moving higher, just not as fast. So, what’s to make us believe we’ll see a big jump in inflation in 2018? I’ll give you the arguments for and against as we go along today.
