Inflation and the Economy: How Bad is This Going to Get?

Inflation pushed the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates sooner than expected, leading the stock market into a sharp decline. Has inflation peaked, and how fast is it likely to go down? Is a recession likely in the near term? What are the effects on employment, and who might get hit hardest?
