In case you haven’t heard … prices? They’re higher these days. That’s not terribly surprising, given the global supply chain debacle, but it turns out a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic has an impact, too. Dozens of countries have experienced inflation since the onset of the pandemic, and the United States has one highest rates. Today, we look at how the U.S. approach to addressing inflation differs from other countries around the globe. We’ll also take a trip to a warehouse to see its role in the global supply chain, hear how the Great Resignation isn’t necessarily benefitting everyone and celebrate jobless claims that haven’t been this low since the Beatles were together.
