Many of us is probably losing 10% of our wealth without realizing it. This thief is called inflation and it steals the VALUE of money. Inflation is when the level of prices for goods and services are rising and, consequently, the purchasing power of the currency is failing.
The picture above shows an example of how inflation works when we go food shopping. The purchasing power of $20 dollars is not the same anymore! It takes more dollars in 2016 to acquire the same amount of food that it did in 1998.
