Inflation is high, but it’s been much higher in recent memory


Yeah, inflation is high at 8.5% (as of February 2022), but we have seen higher in recent memory.

How is inflation measured?

It is measured by the Consumer Price Index on a monthly basis. “The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the average change over time in the prices paid by urban consumers for a market basket of consumer goods and services.” Reference:

In other words, it measures inflation as a percentage year over year.

It was as high as 11.1% in 1974 & 1975 with Nixon and Ford administrations. However, it was consistently high during the Carter Administration peaking at 13.5% in 1980.
