Letter: Offering a simple tutorial on how inflation works

What an around-the-mulberry bush explanation for inflation. It doesn’t matter which party is in the White House.

The simple and honest answer is more jobs and higher wages increase household incomes and leads to a rise in consumer spending, further increasing aggregate demand and the scope for firms to increase the prices of their goods and services.

It’s very simple. It’s a combination which happens at different times, no matter who is president.
