What is the Best Inflation Rate?

First, let’s define inflation…

Non-monetary inflation (supply-chain issues) + Monetary inflation (increase in money supply) = X

X - GDP Growth = Price inflation (increase in overall prices)

The Left tends to focus on non-monetary inflation because it’s easier to increase government spending when you can blame rising prices on “profiteering” and Putin.
