On core inflation

For anyone who's interested, Paul Krugman has an interesting blog post on why the Fed tracks core inflation rather than actual inflation.

  1. Krugman is a socialist. Quote a legitimate source for a change.

  2. Now here's a beautiful place to live in Delray. It's certainly a place where one can be very proud to own.

  3. He makes some good points but why don't they call it "core inertia"?

  4. "Krugman is a socialist. Quote a legitimate source for a change."

    If you don't know what the definition of a "quote" is, how can I rely on your labeling of an individual as "socialist" since it is likely you don't know this definition either? Also, this would explain why you attribute being socialist as means to discredit someone as a legitimate source.

  5. Krugman is a socialist. Quote a legitimate source for a change.

    Translation: Stop quoting globally respected economists, and start quoting talentless wingnut-welfare hacks who can't get work at a real university, whose scanty academic work has been widely discredited, but who flatter my misconceptions.
