Inflation rose 6.2% in a year. That hasn’t happened since the ’90s.

Also today: We hear some more insight on inflation from U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who talked with Marketplace's Kai Ryssdal earlier in the week. Sticking with the theme of rising prices, we look into how people are swapping out what they buy in the grocery store as a result. There's also been a rise in foreclosures, and it doesn't seem like it'll slow down.
