Hey Keith,

Exactly! I just used socks as a simple way to explain inflation at the very basic level.

The first two main points I wanted to get across as catalysts for inflation in the next year or two are the post pandemic surge in demand as well as worker shortages.

I have to agree with you that we have to look at inflation across all segments of goods and services which is why although I pointed out food and airlines may be priced higher now, the overall price of consumer goods is still relatively low.
