ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the problem of inflation and discusses the human side to it. It states that inflation is the most important problem of the U.S. Almost everybody is convinced about the problem since each day brings new increases in the cost of living. The article states that the intent is not to minimize the problem of inflation nor to demean economics and certainly not to imply that there are clear or easy solutions to economic problems besetting the nation. On the contrary, the notion that economics has little if any relevance to social welfare and social work must be replaced by a perspective, which recognizes that every fluctuation in the economy and each attempted solution may have widespread and often profound effects on lives and welfare of people. Nor is it to suggest that social worker should now become economists. But someone should be saying that solutions that go only to economic considerations and do not address human and social needs, or that put economic needs before human needs, are not solutions at all.
