Inflation is the rate of increase in prices over a given period of time. It may be one of the most familiar words in economics.
In an inflationary environment, unevenly rising prices inevitably reduce the purchasing power of some consumers, and this erosion of real income is the single biggest cost of inflation.
The negative effects of inflation are easy to see. The loss of real income – for those on fixed incomes is particularly pronounced. Moreover, because people need to hold some wealth in money for transactions and unforeseen expenditures, inflation ultimately acts to diminish this portion of wealth until wages increase.
To understand how we can better preserve our wealth, CCPAA-ON is hosting a webinar on the topic of “Capital Markets in the Inflationary Era.” The mechanism of macro-economics and capital markets will be introduced and the following topics will be covered:
- The “Quantitative Easing” since the global financial crisis
- New reality – rising inflation
- Quantitative tightening
- Seeking diversification – managing risks in the new era
