Federal Reserve
The Federal Reserve it can be argued has done a great job of propping up the economy during the Great Recession with its easy money policies led by Quantitative Easing 1, 2 and 3. However, the growth in the stock market and the low interest rate on our ballooning debt is artificial as a result of the Fed's policies. Dialing back of their latest bond-buying program, is the finesse move confronting the Fed for the next five years. If the Fed moves too fast, it could cool the recovery. If it moves too slowly, it could fuel asset bubbles or excessive inflation. With the stock market booming since the election of Donald Trump, these fears are heightened.

Going out is getting more expensive. Gas prices, alone, are up a whopping 58.1% over the past year, and that’s just to get to where you are going. From museums to theme parks, concerts and sporting events, the price of admission is rising nearly across the board in 2022.

In the latest Argyle-Leger Confidence Report, a series of national surveys that examine Americans’ attitudes and behaviors related to their confidence in information on key issues, 66 percent cite inflation as their biggest concern for 2022, followed by COVID-19 (53%), supply chain issues (38%), and too much government spending (31%).
