Dr. Hartwig was featured on the South Carolina Public Radio discussing the effects of inflation and how to deal with rising prices. He explained that many factors have produced this inflationary period, some of them beyond America’s control. One such factor is geopolitics. He goes into further detail about the impacts of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and and the impact it is having on oil and gas exports all around the world. Dr Hartwig and Clemson University economist, Dr. Scott Baier, both agree that excessive spending and the amount of stimulus that the government put into the economy are contributing factors to inflation.
