The consensus among economists is that inflation peaked in August. But Nedbank's economic team is more optimistic, forecasting that when Statistics South Africa releases August's consumer price index data today, it will show we got over the inflation hump in July.
Inflation is higher than expected, which has lead things to get pricier quicker. Offset what inflation takes away with what a savings account gives. Get a cheaper bank account and pay off your credit card in case they raise the repo again.
