The real business leaders, not the politicians or political analysts, say that inflation is still rising and that the economy will get worse.

From CNBC. At CNBC’s Delivering Alpha Investor Summit in New York City Wednesday, several big names in the investor community indicated they see no signs inflation is waning.

Council membership includes 44% of CFOs from Fortune 500 firms, and of that cohort, half from Fortune 100 firms.
