“the way economists look at it, you can have demand pull inflation, which is essentially when the economy is running hotter, demand is picking up, and that there’s too much demand chasing too few goods, and that can cause the price levels to increase. The other way is a cost push inflation, which typically involves supply constraints. So one of the classic examples is looking back to the 1970s and the oil embargo, and OPEC, which created a huge bottleneck with energy prices and caused, those prices here in the U.S. to skyrocket.”
