#3083  Inflation, the Economy, the Fed, the Banks and You!!!

Instructor: Dr. Jim Poole

What the heck is going on?  Almost two years ago, inflation started to tick up and its rise has persisted ever since.  The Fed has raised rates in an attempt to bring down inflation, but about the only thing that has happened is now we have higher rates and inflation.  The banking system seemed fine, and then suddenly Silicon Valley Bank had to be rescued followed by three other regional banks, all within a two-week period.  This caused a banking panic reminiscent of 2008 - 2009 and a flight to safety.  How are you handling this?  What should you do?  Is your money safe?  When will inflation end?  These are just some of the questions that we will address in this timely talk.


Jim Poole, PhD in statistics, MS in geology and economics/finance.  Dr. Poole spent thirty-five years at various major and regional banks.  He worked his way up to a Senior Risk Officer and a Portfolio Manager.  He has dealt with bank failures, portfolio sales, and collecting bad loans.  He is very proud of the fact that after thirty-five years he never opened a checking account or took out a car loan.
