I am no financial expert, but I keep hearing talk of inflation. Usually I would not care, but since I plan on taking advantage of the government, I thought I should look into it. So here is the scenario. I will be receiving as much as possible of $17,500 over the next two years in student loans, but I do not plan on spending it. Now my question is: What should I do with my money to make sure it does not lose any value due to inflation? Do banks keep your money up with inflation? How about bonds/securities? Thanks, any help would be appreciated.
