New York Times columnist says he has 'high tolerance' for inflation in 'white-hot economy'
Fox news ^ | 11/28/2021 | Angelica Stabile

The media continues to downplay mass inflation in today’s economy, including New York Times columnist David Brooks, who encouraged a "white-hot economy" and said he has a "high tolerance" for inflation.

"I want a white-hot economy," he said. "I want a white-hot economy that will raise wages at the bottom, which is happening, that will bring people back into the labor force, which is happening, which is spreading wealth around the country and not concentrating in a few cities."

Outside the bubble of idiots who actually buy that paper, this is fantastically tone-deaf.

He doesn’t have a clue .
The white hot economy is a flash that results in long term unemployment.
This moron knows just enough Economics to say stupid things

You can have a “white hot” economy or you can have inflation.

Ever notice you can be on the Left, blow boogars out your nose for a living, and be a millionaire, but if your not a Democrat, and you say a truth you are excoriated.

So, if you are doing what you are always told to do, save money for a rainy day, and the value of your $100,000 account decrease 6% in value, you should be a good soldier and just be happy about it? The writer is a douchebag.

Thinking that inflation means growth is like saying standing on a ladder makes you taller.

We have 10,000,000 unfilled jobs; Brooks is a moron.

I have almost no tolerance for David Brooks but I have even less for misleading click bait headlines.

Brooks is not saying what the headlines imply, he is doing what he always does, covering both sides of his ass but shading the truth slightly to the left.

Watch the video and see that is what in fact he did.

I’m sure inflation is no problem for him. He makes probably a million a year or better.

Me? I retired 4 years ago. I’m basically making what I made in 2018 when gas was maybe $2.25 a gallon. A meal at an average O’Charleys restaurant was $11
Now gas is $3.25 and that meal is $15.

The appearance of our “white-hot” economy is caused by the white-hot inflation rate.

As if anyone gives credence to a liberal New Yorker. Especially a journalism type. (The worst of the worst. Even dumber than an education major.)

Where are the people joining the labor force of which he speaks?

Labor force participation is still down several million from peak.

Math is hard.

David Brooks considers himself a member of the Expert Class.
