Or maybe rich people have just caught onto predicted hyperinflation globally.

Cloud computing software product and service brand Oracle recently made a purchase for Cerner on December 20th, 2021 for almost over $28.3B in cash to expand operations.

And Cerner isn't the only healthcare brand willing to merge with top Cloud software brands. In April, Microsoft purchased Nuance communications firm for $16B, and Amazon and Google also made investments to take advantage of the increased demand in healthcare.

So, what are the reasons behind this demand and, more importantly, Cerner's willingness to take advantage of Oracle's $28.3B deal, and was it a smart move to make given predicted hyperinflation in 2022?

A global pandemic? Savvy business deals? Past hyperinflation history?
