This is the definitive source for US inflation data. If the link comes through cleanly, the graph will have a log vertical scale. The higher inflation era from 1975-1981 is clearly visible.

For those who fear inflation, please make the case with timely (recent) data why you hold the view you do.

What did investors do in the 1975-1981 period? Equities were no help. Bonds were much better returning in the 1970s than today. Today bonds are dead. Equities or alternative investments (direct investment in businesses, real estate) are a couple of the more obvious avenues.
