Inflation is the monster that everyone fears. If inflation grows at an annual rate of 7%, that's 28% over 4 years, while wages may increase at 2% a year, if they increase at all. That's a net reduction of 20% in disposable income. A 20% reduction in disposable income will have a dramatic affect on quality of life. Many car models are already being priced at $7000 above last year's prices. There's only one way to beat the inflation monster and that's to increase your household income. You could rely on the generosity of your current employer to match pay increases with inflation rates, but don't hold your breath on that one.
