Anthony Pellegrino explained what inflation is as well as how it can affect a person’s portfolio and retirement prospects: “Inflation is a rise in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy over a period of time. The main cause of inflation is too much money chasing too few goods and services. This situation results in higher prices for goods and services. The most effective way to combat inflation is by increasing productivity, which will lead to more goods and services being produced and available for purchase, thereby keeping prices stable.”
Regarding the current state of the economy, Mr. Pellegrino stated: “CNBC recently reported that 77% of retirees stated that their biggest concern about retirement right now is inflation. And it’s for good reason because inflation rates have soared to their highest rate in forty years, but here’s something that’s even more interesting, well-known economist and inflation expert Peter Schiff recently said that ‘if we measured consumer prices the same way that we did back in 1982, the inflation rate in 2021 would be roughly 15%,’ which would be the highest in our country’s history.”
Mr. Pellegrino went on to comment: “Everyone knows that what we are paying right now is more than we have ever paid for things like gasoline, groceries, and household staples. Although the “Fed” has said that these issues are transitory it has become apparent that is not the case. And so for anyone who is looking to retire, the idea of ongoing persistent inflation is worrisome.”
When discussing what that would mean for retirees, Anthony Pellegrino replied, “Let me ask you a question, ‘What was your house worth 20 or 30 years ago versus what it’s worth today?’ So it’s not a night and day difference, but if you think about what it’s going to be worth 20 to 30 years from now, the biggest mistake people are making is basing their retirement goals based on what the price of things are today, not what they’re going to be 10-20 years from now.”
