I went grocery shopping this week, and as I was picking up items, that famous line from "When Zaidy was Young" kept on ringing in my mind...

Since when did apples become a food for millionaires?
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

Except that it's not only apples anymore. Avocados at Costco 10.99 for a bag. And many more items. Just paid 9.99 per lbs of Salmon filet at Jetro today (we've paid as low as 3.19 per lbs in the past).

To answer the thread title, it might be far on the horizon, but in the meantime the deflationary forces are just so great that no inflation is in sight.

You're disagreeing now with a post that is more than a year old. By this point deflation seems to be on the horizon while inflation is here (as evidenced by the interest rate curve).

Cortland apple on the pound comes out $1.50 per apple. Talking of a cheaper cooking apple, not honey crisp. Moshiach's times.

Education comprises ~1% of the CPI, but in the frum community it’s much more significant in our annual budgeting. #frumflation

Jeff Bezos found his mouth:

Getting into a public spat with the White House. Seems like some in the country are waking up. Probably "too little, too late", though.

Maybe he’s considering running for president, or just trying to undermine Biden laying the ground for the Dems to nominate someone else for 2024.
