The current year-over-year inflation rate (2021 to 2022) is now 6.81%. If this number holds, $63 today will be equivalent in buying power to $67.29 next year. The current inflation rate page gives more detail on the latest inflation rates.

While the stock market returns are good for my superannuation, I feel that the cost of living is increasing. Apart from avocados. $1 avocados seem set to stay, which is good for my breakfast bottom line. 😜

Well then you can say the same thing about the stock market.

And we can go round and round and round.

I'm just enjoying this time right now where the US economy is strong and the stock market is reflecting that.
