Native America Calling: Everything costs more

Everything costs more
Affording the basics is becoming harder every day as inflation continues to creep higher. Add to that the rising costs for gas and lingering supply-chain breakdowns.

And a new study reminds us that people of color pay a steeper cost during economic hard times than the rest of the population. Shawn Spruce examines where and how inflation is surfacing and points out some hopeful signs that put the current financial concerns in context.

Note: This is an encore show so Native America Calling won’t be taking live phone calls.
