In the latest article by the US Money Reserve, one aspect that is discussed quite frequently in the market is the topic of inflation. The article explains what inflation is, how it can hurt your wallet, and how to protect yourself.

Inflation is simply the rate of increase for goods and services over a period of time. Typically the rate of inflation is measured by one year and is measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). An example would be that if the CPI stands at two percent that means the cost of goods and services has risen by that percent over one year.

Inflation can be a harmful thing to people if it goes up too quickly. If that happens then there is less money for the consumer to spend. If the consumer does not have extra income to spend than interest rates can go up and it will ultimately slow down the economy as a whole. Another thing that inflation can do if it is not held in check is that it makes retirement harder. If a person doesn’t have as much money to save then retirement could be put off for one to several years.

One thing a person can do to protect oneself from the bite of inflation to diversify a portfolio. By keeping a vast array of stocks in a variety of markets can make the difference.

These are a few things the US Money Reserve offers to their consumers. The staff at the US Money Reserve is always willing to help if one has questions. Earning trust and keeping it is paramount for them.
