  1. Yes indeed James.

    It is an astonishing reality: modern-day central bankers have a predilection to obsess about inflation—a peevish fixation. Yet when they get a single mandate to focus on inflation they crush economic growth as seen in Japan and Europe.
    Oddly enough, the generally pro-business right-wing approves of this monetary aspyxiation.

  3. The problem with this article and the general declaration that fighting inflation is bad is based in a wishful, undetermined causality.

    There are a lot more differences between the US and the Eurozone than just fiscal policy.
