How Your Dollar Shrinks

| March 21, 2022

Back in May of 2021, I was concerned the following may come true:

Predicting future prices is difficult. But recent inflation numbers (see past blogs) show a strong trend towards rising prices in certain sectors of our economy. My question is, what would have to happen between now and May of 2022 to get the following numbers:

  • Gold at $3300 per ounce
  • Gas at $6 a gallon
  • Core Price Index (CPI) increase of 6%
  • 10 year Treasury of 3.3%
  • A Dozen Donuts at $13.21.

We'll see how that works out as it's now March of 2022. In the meantime, this drawing sums up my current concerns for retirees.
