Tired of the constant talk about inflation? Don’t tune out yet because we are back with the MOST interesting and fun look at inflation….Len Penzo’s annual sandwich survey. He’s on the 14th year of his iconic survey and he’s here today to share this year’s results. Will the BLT remain the most expensive? Len shares the average cost of a sandwich based on his findings, how it compares to the cost of a school lunch, and ranks 10 sandwiches from least to most expensive.
During our headline segment, we take a look at a leaked memo from Bank of America that says they hope Americans will be in a worse financial position in the next year. You read that right. One of the biggest banks in the country is hoping people are worse off with their money. Why? Bigger profit. Joe and OG dive in and share how to be better with your banking. We’ll also answer Michelle’s question about inflation and deflation and Doug will share his trivia.
