    In a BAD inflation (which this one is not… yet?), people prefer to own “things” instead of money. Because real value doesn’t change when “dollar value” gets bigger and bigger. And you can always fall back on barter. Back when inflation was running a bit above 10%, I normally kept a list of “wants” and filled it (priority order) as soon as my paycheck cleared. Kept my gas tank full, too: No point filling it next week when it would cost a bit more. And stopped smoking: Didn’t want to spend that kind of money on a freakin’ pack of cigarettes fgawdsake. No cloud without a silver lining, eh? Of course, savings accounts were paying (almost) enough to cover inflation, so I did keep enough back to handle a medium sized emergency.

    Inflation is not deadly.

    The pandemic is deadly.

    The climate crisis is deadly.

    Inflation is merely inconvenient.

    It’s a good time to give thanks for being so spoiled that we can worry so much about inflation.

    Inflation is a constant. Covid added a big bump into it, but it will settle and resume it’s normal course. I doubt anyone posting here has ever paid 29 cents for a loaf of bread. That was the price around 1929.

    Biden never shoulda put such an effort into vaccination, then inflation wouldn’t be such a problem.

    Easy solution: Don’t shop! If nobody’s buying, prices go down.

    Part of the current inflation is that people are buying, buying, buying. So she is the problem that is causing the problem.

    You can personally negate the effects of inflation by stopping frivolous spending.

    From the comments, I conclude that the Fed dumping trillions into the pockets of banks, buying up worthless corporate debt at face value, and keeping interest rates – for the rich – at zero, has nothing to do with inflation.

    Looks like all the “conservative” cartoonist have “inflation on the brain”. But, since they can’t whine about anything else, that’s what they fall back on.

    Rob, I am sure you know better than to do a toon that feeds on empty GQP fear mongering. This one kind of tarnishes your liberal bonifas.

    With 7 decades under my belt, I’ve lived through inflation, recessions, market crashes, etc. None of them “killed” us – life might not have been as good as it could have been, but you learn how to hunker down and get through it!

    The inflation is the result of business folks gouging people during the pandemic. Once they discover people will pay more for something they make the “gouge level” prices permanent, thus leading to inflation.
