I maestri truccatori erano dei miseri dilettanti a confronto degli statistici statali.

L’inflazione americana si sarebbe attestata al +6.2%.

L’inflazione non esiste e, se esistesse, sarebbe soltanto un episodio transitorio.

Chiunque non la pensasse in questo modo sarebbe un negazionista e sarà impalato lungo le rive del Potomac.

Per gli americani si prospetta un inverno al buio ed al gelo. Ecologicamente lindi e con la pancia vuota. La stagflazione inizia a mordere i polpacci della gente.
