Yikes!! The last time inflation was this high was 40 years ago when Reagan took over from Carter. It's especially telling that the forecasts for inflation for 2021 were only around 3.7% which is about half of the final rate. Definitely too much spending going on.

FYI, the inflation number isnít calculated the same way it was back in the 70s. There formula has changed. I heard months ago that if they use the same method as before, inflation is above 15%. Let that sink in.

Not sure of the reliability/reputation of this website, but it has charts comparing inflation as calculated in 1990 and 1980:
