Yet another whispered warning of hyperinflation by the Wall Street Journal

Posted by John T. Reed on

Once again, the WSJ is whispering “hyperinflation” is a crowded theater. This week’s “cover our ass with multiple warning articles” item is an op-ed on page A17 by William Walker titled “The Coming Demand Surge Brings Back Memories of 1970s Inflation.” Google the title to read it.
.
As always in this informal Journal series, they refuse to use the work “hyperinflation.” I suspect they fear being accused of being tin foil hat wearers.
.
As always in this informal Journal series, the punch line is in the final sentence: “Once [inflation] gets its claws into a demand-fueled, supply-constrained economy, it can become a scourge and history teaches that there is not an easy or painless way to tame it.”
.
Note the word “scourge.” That means hyperinflation. But no tin-foil hat accusations. I accuse the Journal of whispering fire in a crowded theater that is, in fact, on fire. In this analogy, the fire is the hyperinflation.
.
It is PROPER to yell fire in a crowded theater that is on fire. Whispering fire in a crowded theater that is on fire is an immoral dereliction of duty. If we are going to have hyperinflation of the USD, and I think we are, the Wall Street Journal, more than all other periodicals should have warned us.
.
Instead, all you have warning you is little old me.
.
Word to the wise.
