Explain This: Inflation

Goldman Sachs Asset Management is recommending investors keep the faith in stocks. 

Equities offer the best opportunity to outperform inflation, the firm said in an Investment Ideas 2022 report. Cyclical stocks — like financials, energy and resources companies — are especially well-suited to benefit from rising prices, it said.
