There's an index that measures inflation. It's called the CPI or "Consumer Price Inflation" index. It's supposed to tell us how much inflation is making its way into our economy.
Problem is, it's not reliable. Like most of the indexes used to track the economy, (unemployment, jobless claims, PMI, GDP) the government has manipulated them to try and put the rosiest face possible on our economic situation.
A better measure of how much inflation is impacting our lives is the Buritto index. While not a government sanctioned measurement, it may be the most accurate way of determining the real effects inflation is having on your average American.
Today we'll talk about the effect all this money creation is having on our economy and more importantly how it's impacting you in ways you haven't fully appreciated.
It can't be that hard to find the person(s) leaking this information and get them removed. I think this is evidence of a deeper problem inside the intelligence community. Is it a hatred for Trump, the administration in general or just poor management? We'll discuss today.
It's a bit funny given the discussion we had today about dollar inflation, but we count our blessings where we can.
