I have tried in my articles not to be opinionated or political, but with inflation at a 40-year high, it is time to address the topic.

The why we must control inflation is simple: It hurts the poorest among us the most. The poor do not own assets that increase in value during inflationary periods. Their fixed incomes are stretched to a point that purchasing the basics needs of living becomes impossible. The working poor have lost any gains they have made in increased wages.
