    Inflation is not a problem…….massive money creation over the last 10 years, and minimal inflation.

    Your next stop….the Deflation Zone.

    Absurd all around. First, Trump cannot paint himself into a corner. That turn of phrase only applies to people constrained by prior action or principle. Trump would walk through wet paint with tremendous, big, beautiful footprints. Who is going to call him out? The Fed? The media? The G.O.P.? The Dem-, no. Don’t even get me started.

    Second, if the Trumpified Republicans can embrace tariffs and a politicized Fed, they can accept anything. FX interventions, subsidies, price controls, capital controls, nationalizing coal, Five Year Plans, whatever. If it nets them one vote, one nickel, and the brown people are still in cages, the Republicans will sign off on it and the only retort will be a blistering A.O.C. tweet.
