Addicted to InflationThe first step toward recovery is admitting that you have a problem. That goes for political movements as well as individuals.

In particular, it’s addicted to inflation — not the thing itself, but the claim that runaway inflation is either happening or about to happen.
... "The era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays, is coming to a close. In its place, we are entering a period of consequences." - Winston Churchill, The Gathering Storm
