Recently, however, inflation has risen from extremely low levels, driven largely by increased energy and grocery prices.

Michael Gerber

I returned from a fantastic conference in Dallas Monday night. First, in the interest of honesty and transparency, I want to tell you that I didn't follow my own advice.
