  • Learning outcomes: If you're not finding your groceries more expensive, then you are probably not shopping. We're in a period of inflation and facing a possible recession. This webinar will look at historical periods of inflation, recession, and depression, and present resources for understanding them. We'll also look at resources to help us all stretch our budgets and cope with tough economic times. Resources covered will include information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. Census Bureau, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and the Federal Reserve. Of course, there'll be some resources in other languages and some appropriate local, regional, and state resources. Join us to learn about the resources and maybe keep some of that cash in your pocket.
