Understanding the Complexities of Inflation. Professor Womer, resident economist and economics professor will address the complicated mechanism that creates inflation, explaining the phenomenon and what it means to people in a contemporary capitalist society. So suddenly your money is worth less, or is it? Inflation is a complex issue not really governed by political parties or politics but often by market factors that are deep-seated in society and society’s fundamental economic practices.

If you are a saver or a spender or you plan on blaming inflation, tune into Professor Womer’s pithy analysis of our current economic climate and the factors that have led us to today. Economic factors aren’t always obvious or clear so join Prof Wormer on a study of how we arrived here, after one of the longest sustained periods of wealth building in history. The Pew Research Center reported trends in income and wealth inequality in 2020 saying that, “the U.S. middle class, which once comprised the clear majority of Americans, is shrinking.” What’s Up with that? Join Professor Womer for an exciting talk about something we all like: MONEY!!!!
