It may be one of the most familiar words in economics today. Prices are rising everywhere. Consumers are watching increases on everything from food to gas to lodging. Why the increase? Inflation. Inflation is the rate of increase in prices over a given period of time. Organizations large and small are feeling the effects of inflation and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to navigate in the business world causing many to have to face the tough decision to either redesign their operations or to close their doors. This virtual workshop will provide resources to use in your classroom to help your students better understand inflation and how it is affecting everyone in the economy.
