Seems like a good question. Why crosspost over from my other blogs conversations about the high inflation rate that we are seeing?
What does that have to do with freedom?
Actually, a lot.
Inflation is a hidden tax on consumers.
It takes money out of the pocket of people.
It destroys the value of retirement income for seniors.
It undercuts and distorts the economy in general which undercuts economic freedom.
Inflation messes with people’s pocketbooks, income streams, retirement savings, and assets. Inflation, particularly when caused by deliberate government policy, erodes freedom.
So I will talk about inflation on this blog.
