Managing your money during inflation, rising interest rates and uncertainty 

A jar with change falling out of it
As the job market is slowing, inflation is still with us and interest rates are going up, you may be a little short on change these days.

The job market is slowing, inflation is still with us and interest rates are going up on credit cards, car loans and home mortgages. And now, we’re about to get slammed with colder weather and high home heating bills

There’s a lot of discouraging financial news that we can’t control. But we can take steps to minimize the impact on our household budgets. 

MPR News host Angela Davis talks with two financial experts about how to manage inflation, debt and more in the months to come. 


  • Chris Farrell is senior economics contributor at Marketplace, American Public Media's nationally syndicated public radio business and economic programs. He’s also a senior economics contributor at Minnesota Public Radio.

  • Kim Miller is a financial counselor with LSS Financial Counseling, a service of Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota based in St. Paul.
