High Inflation Explained...
This week we dive into one of the major causes for high inflation... Hint, its not excessive money printing.
We discuss the bullwhip effect, how it effects commodities and goods like avocados, lobsters, ammunition, lumber and more. We make this advanced economic topic simple and easy to understand. You can amaze your friends and family with your extensive knowledge about how the economic system works and it might even help you understand how this inflation cycle will play out...
Yes this topic is that important.
Oh did I mention that The Beer Game is a simple way to understand the bullwhip effect as well...
Sorry The Beer Game does not involve drinking beer. Although I won't tell you not to. 🙂

Today's Guest: Kirk Chisholm
Kirk Chisholm is a Wealth Manager and Principal at Innovative Advisory Group, an independent Registered Investment Advisor located in Lexington, MA. He has been providing wealth management services to individuals, executives, entrepreneurs, and their families since 1999. He is an outside the box thinker, risk manager, inflation expert, blogger, podcaster, and all-around interesting guy. Kirk is dedicated to developing lasting relationships with all of his clients and their families. One of the benefits of working with Kirk is his patience, empathy, and his ability to provide clear and easy-to-understand explanations to complex financial topics.
Kirk developed a unique philosophy for the wealth management industry called Risk Management First. The medical field has a similar way of thinking of “first do no harm”. This philosophy focuses on risk management for clients in all aspects of their lives in ways the industry does not address. Risk management does not stop with investments. It also requires working closely with other professionals to address areas of their financial lives not currently being met.
In 2008, Kirk co-founded Innovative Advisory Group to address the needs not being addressed by the wealth management industry. It started with specializing in alternative assets held in retirement accounts (i.e. self directed IRAs/401ks). Then the company expanded into the specialization of college funding (i.e. planning, strategy, and paying the least possible for a high quality education), Risk Management First, exit planning for business owners, advanced planning (estate, tax, etc), and providing practice management and leadership training to other financial advisors, accountants and attorneys.
