With inflation at levels not seen since the early 1980s, many investors are left scrambling to ensure their assets and wealth are protected. The latest U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report reflected an alarming 8.5% year-over-year Consumer Price Index (CPI) increase, the highest since January of 1982. This astounding inflation metric comes as no surprise when analyzing the total monetary supply in the United States. In January 2020, just $4.0192 trillion was in circulation while in November of 2021, that number skyrocketed to $20.354 trillion. These figures represent a staggering statistic; the U.S. government has printed 80% of the total monetary supply in the past two years. Investors are turning to real estate in order to provide a hedge against rampant inflation.


The Chamber thanks its Strategic Partners for their support.
