There was a huge recession that killed the stock market in 2007-2010 and the Feds flooded the market to maintain liquidity... however, the economic policy of quantitative easing ended in 2014.

The first indicator of inflation is rising wages.

And yet other non-commodity asset prices continue to go up and up.  S&P 500 EPS has gone up 13% in the last 4 years, while share price has gone up 75%.  P/E has gone from 13 to 20.  What exactly do you think is driving that?  Where is that money coming from? It's money printing, fueling cheap debt, to fuel share repurchases.

At the same time real median wages continue to decline.  In other words the value of a paycheck is eroding.

If you want to find the true rate of inflation, just follow gold prices.

The only reason the world doesn't have a problem with the $ is that we're the least bad actor among a pile of horrible actors.  Everyone else is printing at a rate that meets or exceeds us.  The ECB, JCB, everyone.

And even IF inflation is flat, which I'm not convinced it is despite the official numbers, it's still inflation, which by definition will cause the value of assets to rise and the purchasing power of a paycheck to erode.  That's just what inflation does.
