Obviously, inflation is a huge topic these days, and a major campaign issue. We haven't seen inflation like this in about four decades, so a lot of people who weren't born or were too young to grasp its impact then are freaking out now. It's understandable, as all of a sudden, people can't buy as many things as they are used to. A lot of blame is being spread around like fertilizer, but not all of it is fair. And the "tools" used to fight inflation in the past may do more harm than good now. Photo by unsplash.com/@yassine_khalfalli
