An out-of-touch academic, writing a column for Bloomberg Opinion, demonstrated just how out of touch the country's elites are as inflation hits every sector of the country.
Instead of hiding the mess, or better yet, just not printing it, Bloomberg Opinion tweeted its existence out with a handy tip sheet: (tweets at link)
Inflation stings most if you earn less than $300K. Here's how to deal:
➡️ Take the bus ➡️ Don’t buy in bulk ➡️ Try lentils instead of meat ➡️ Nobody said this would be fun
Which was about as amateur-hour as it gets on the age-old topic of cutting back as inflation eats into worker earnings.
The "advice" also included a recommendation to cut chemotherapy for one's dog as if that would solve the inflation problem for a loving pet owner.
Memo to Bloomberg columnist Teresa Ghilarducci of the New School for Social Research: Poor people already know how to cut back. It's called 'not having enough money.'
Where have we heard that before? Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who advised Americans to buy $100,000 electric cars as a means of beating fuel inflation certainly would relate.
And sure enough, the unconventional president of El Salvador noticed something 'off' about this, ultimately rooted in the out-of-touch U.S. ruling classes:

Some may think that these elites have names, and addresses, and food.
It’s amazing how lacking in Self Awareness some people have. Unless this was just written to get rage clicks ...in which case Bloomberg did a great job.
See, this is a perfect illustration of my oft repeated point that Leftist, don’t know history, don’t understand history, and aren’t the least bit interested in learning about history.
If they did know it, understood it, and had interest in learning it, something like the French Revolution would scare them to death.
It is one of the reasons we are so up in arms about Leftists wielding power. We saw what happened in the 20th Century when they had their chance to put their rat-claws on the levers of power worldwide.
Lenin. Stalin. Mao. Pol Pot. Castro. Hundreds of millions murdered. Not to mention the Leftists in this country who have worked to destroy it. We know and understand this, and it explains why we have concern.
Eat the elites!
Glad I don’t support these IDIOTS on Ukraine.
“ Lenin. Stalin. Mao. Pol Pot. Castro. Hundreds of millions murdered.”
But they’ll get it right this time.
The sheer repetitiveness of that from the Left made me actually snicker reading in your post!
And I thought, “Damn. Nothing at all funny about that. These people are serious.”
If they killed themselves off with their policies, I would think that is their own business, but they mean, for our own good of course, to take us with them.
“ These people are serious.”
We should be too.
See my tag line.
The president of El Salvador certainly sees through the fog.
I’m with you, Lurker.
