There are 3 comments on How Will Inflation Affect the Economy in 2023?

  1. Kotlikoff stresses that we will not be entering a recession unless we “scare ourselves into a recession.”

    So higher interest rates that stymie corporate investing in new capital and equipment necessary for growth while at the same time encouraging personal saving rather than spending on discretionary items and investing in riskier assets such as equities no longer matters so as long as we all continue to throw caution to wind and borrow and spend without fear?

    Will someone pinch me please!

  2. inflation is a social construct, I choose to not believe in inflation. I am manifesting a good economic state in the coming few months. I am a manifestation master. Please send blessings in replies. Best, Berthholdt Kim

  3. Economic common sense does not require a graduate degree in macroeconomics, but rather the ability to read, research, and understand American economic history. A young child who can reason abstractly asks, “why is a candy bar so expensive today in 2023, when a larger candy bar than is produced in 2023, or its equivalent candy, was five cents or less for over 100 years, from 1855 to 1965? Further, the child asks, “why were all consumer items, milk, bread, meat, vegetables, etc. all well under one dollar in unit price before 1960? Is the glib economist going to lie to the child and say that ‘inflation is a necessary ingredient of a healthy economy, and that inflation in the republic was inevitable?

    Is it possible that BU does not want its readers to realize that the Federal Reserve is unconstitutional and that the reason for the egregious inflation in 2023 is what happened in 1913, with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act, the disappearance of the gold/silver standard in the 1970s by the Keynesian Richard Nixon, and the evisceration of the silver certificates and the imposition of the worthless Federal Reserve note?

    History is full of salient facts and the alteration and revision of history involves a deliberate ignoring and propagandizing of those salient facts. If the U.S had not installed the unconstitutional IMF (international monetary fund), signed on to the Keynesian Bretton-Woods conspiracy in the late 1940s, unconstitutionally changed the American dollar into a world reserve currency and entered the global economy, ended the gold/silver standard and began printing worthless Federal Reserve notes, the American economy would be as strong and healthy in 2023 as it was in 1889, with almost zero debt, and zero inflation. It all began with the illegal passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, when an international banking cartel, the Fed, replaced Congress as the exclusive constitutionally empowered branch of the federal government for coining and valuating American money, Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4, which has not been amended through the Article 5 amendment process.

    Economic history is frequently very gut-wrenching when one realizes that the sad facts are very true. Children should be told the truth about American economic history. The future is in the hands of our properly educated children. They are the only hope for a restoration of the American republic.
