Money Making Sense

Building your buffers is key to weathering inflation and recession

Supply chain issues could fuel inflation for another year.  That’s from Phil Dean, chief economist at the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute and Susan Speirs, CEO of Utah Association of CPAs.  They say having a financial cushion is the only way to survive.
