It's actually difficult to decide in which way you're wrong, but I'll go with this as an opener:Too bad Gary isn't around on this thread. There's no inflation. Just ask the government. The comrade in chief wouldn't lie to us.
"The BLS publishes thousands of CPI indexes each month, including the headline All Items CPI for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) and the CPI-U for All Items Less Food and Energy. The latter series, widely referred to as the "core" CPI, is closely watched by many economic analysts and policymakers under the belief that food and energy prices are volatile and are subject to price shocks that cannot be damped through monetary policy."
Not only did I most certainly not say there was no inflation, but in the number you're referring to, the price of oil/gas is not included. Nice try.
