The real reason we have inflation

jus' thinkin' 'bout stuff - 04-23-2022 - by steve rigell -

We have inflation because employers are permitted to extract labor without valuing it by paying a reasonable wage.

We have inflation because we are greedy.

Inflation is simply a measure of greed.

Inflation is a measure of the greed we are willing to tolerate. Inflation is a measure of the greed that society will permit.

Inflation is not sustainable.

Life is not sustainable unless every entity adds more value to its context than it extracts during its life.

Life is not sustainable unless everything is always reused, reconfigured, adapted to meet emerging growth opportunities.

Life is about growth, but we don’t really understand growth. We measure growth by what we extract, not by what we contribute.

This is a fundamental flaw in the way humans think. We have to stop thinking this way. We must change our minds.

Change your mind

Let’s do something together
