Event Overview

This session will provide an overview of what is causing inflation currently. 

With inflation now at the highest it’s been in 40 years, many people are feeling the pinch, especially with gas and food prices.  

Naturally, consumers are adapting behaviours: eating even more often at home, trading down to value branded products and shopping with retailers that offer discounts.  

In this session we will explore and discuss the cause of inflation and what role this plays in modern economies and the impact this can have on the life of an average person. 

No prior knowledge of finance or inflation is necessary for this session.
