Here is my take on inflation explained in 5 minutes. Inflation is at a 40-year high. In this video, I will explain inflation in 5 minutes and offer my reasons for why it’s so high and what it means for you.

Inflation is defined as a general increase in the prices of goods and services in the economy. You can also think of inflation as a decline in purchasing power. Basically, the prices of everything you use and need go up.
