Even when you win, you still lose...

With inflation at 7% year over year, a 5% pay increase does you no good...

It's nice getting that pay raise right?!

It's been a long time coming and a nice 5% jump feels like a big deal.

That $60k a year job is now paying $63k per year.

Yes!

Except you are still losing....

A 5% pay increase in the face of 7% inflation means you are still earning 2% less than you were previously.

Yikes!

You need to get a 12% pay increase to really feel a 5% increase with the 7% inflation.

We've had 3 straight months of 6-7% inflation numbers, which is the highest inflation levels in 50 years.

I fully expect this inflation to die down rather quickly, but I do think that overall inflation isn't going away.

That's where bitcoin comes in...
