Progressives need to fear inflation more than recession

Raising interest rates will do less harm to the economy (and Democrats) than the alternative.

In 1919, John Maynard Keynes (pictured above) wrote the following on inflation:

As inflation rises and the real value of the currency fluctuates sharply from month to month, all the constant relations between debtors and creditors, which form the ultimate basis of capitalism, become so utterly disrupted that they become almost meaningless; and the process of acquiring wealth degenerates into gambling and lotteries.

Lenin was definitely right. There is no finer, no safer means of overthrowing the existing foundation of society than the depravity of currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of the economic law of the country of destruction and does so in a way that no man in a million is able to diagnose.

Some American progressives seem to have forgotten Keynes’s warning. Even as inflation continues to rage, they are feverishly fighting against the idea of ​​raising interest rates. The reason is that they fear that the rise in interest rates will cause a recession.
