Pizzaflation (pizza + inflation)

"Pizzaflation” (pizza + inflation) is an infrequently used term. As printed in a 1987 newspaper. “pizzaflation” meant the inflation of pizza crust.

A 2012 blog described “pizzaflation” an inflation in the price of pizza—in this case because of “Obamacare” healthcare costs. “Pizzaflation and the US Dollar collapse” by globalintelhub was posted by Zero Hedge on September 29, 2016 explained economics with pizza.

The real cause of Pizzaflation
Inflation happens only for one reason:  Central Bank prints more currency.  More currency, chasing the same or fewer goods and assets, makes the price go up.  It’s really simple!  QE (Quantitative Easing) has been rampant in recent years.  Fortunately for consumers, most inflation has happened in financial markets, real estate, and other markets.
