NAA’s Inflation Tracker: Cutting Through the Noise
Prices for all types of goods and services are on the rise after a year of business shutdowns, capacity limitations, COVID-19 restrictions, and a brutal recession. How will it affect the industry and how much sleep should you be losing over it? If you want to learn more about this important measure of any economy, join NAA’s AVP of Research & Analysis, Paula Munger, as she discusses price trends, their impact on the economy and the industry, and what we can expect during the second half of another very strange year.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Interpret CPI and other measures of inflation.
- Understand the relationship among inflation, wages, and the labor market.
- Examine current inflationary trends and forecasts, and why they could matter to apartments.
