The U.S. economy is seeing an unprecedented spike in price inflation – and economists fear it could continue for quite a while.

Economist Megan Greene of the Kroll Institute told the Associated Press the economy will eventually return to normal, but that “I think this could last another year easily”.

Consumer prices went up by 6.2% in October in 5.4% in September – the largest increase of the last 30 years.

How long do you think inflation will continue?  What’s the best thing the government can do to slow it down?
