Q

What’s inflation and how does it affect your purchasing power?

A

Inflation decreases the value of the pound — meaning you can buy less with that pound over time.

Inflation isn’t a particularly complicated concept. All the stuff you spend money on — be it milk, rent, hairspray or movie tickets — can be bundled up together to come up with what’s called “cost of living.” As the cost of living rises — a number reflected in what’s called the consumer price index, or CPI — that pound that use to buy two candy bars now barely buys one. That’s inflation.
