I see things differently. All it takes to start and grow inflation is dumping in money. Wages do not need to rise for inflation to take off. Does anybody actually believe that dumping FIVE TRILLION DOLLARS into the economy will not launch a cycle of inflation that will cause a whole lot of damage ao a whole lot of people? And it will be serious damage that will threaten the stability of society. Things will change, and not one atom of that change will be for the better. When a whole lot of people suddenly become both homeless and hungry they may not listen so politely as they do while they are at home and fed.

For a good take on Biden’s ambitions for the infrastructure program(s) check out NPR’s Special Edition of it’s UpFirst podcast with Presidential historian Doris Kearns which was put up over the weekend.

My point was that the records show that in the past, every time money was dumped into the economy, inflation resulted. So why should this time be any different?? There does not seem to be any change in the mechanism of inflation, and so it seems that the results of the action will be the same, although the time delay might be different.

My other concern is about the effect of all that debt on the future. The bad thing about debts is that they must eventually be paid off. ( I keep saying this, I believe it is true.)
