Get an introductory course on inflation and the Consumer Price Index as Sal breaks down American disposable income based on government analysis. He focuses on housing percentages, explaining inconsistencies in the rental equivalence approach versus the previously used asset price method. Sal uses the Case-Shiller Index to show learners how the housing market collapse of 2009 created an underestimated CPI for housing. Learners contemplate the effect this has had on Social Security payments with regard to inflation.
