David Schassler: I think that there are three key takeaways. The first is that inflation is here, it's undeniably a problem, and it's unlikely to go away anytime soon.

Schassler: The second takeaway is that there's good news, and you can actually do something about it. Go out and buy real assets. Real assets have historically performed the best during high inflationary periods of the past, the 1970s, mid-2000s, and are currently leading the market higher now.
