Inflation in America: Current and Future Impacts

Tue Sep 20, 2022
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Recently, the high level of inflation has been a hot topic in the headlines. After a lengthy “free money” environment and accommodative monetary policy, the FED is now markedly increasing interest rates and reducing market liquidity in response to near-record levels of inflation and other data.

What has caused inflation to rise so rapidly–and unexpectedly–in the United States? What is the relationship between inflation and the standard of living for Americans? What are the inflation numbers and trends and how is inflation impacting different parts of the economy?

Join Vail Symposium for a panel of experts who not only discuss the current state of inflation in the United States, but who will also talk about their expectations for the future. What can the government do? What is the FED likely to do? Is “stagflation” a possibility and what would it mean? How long before economic issues return to normal…and is there a normal, considering the impact of energy costs, supply chain issues, conflicts with Russia and China, climate change, food crises and more?
