I don't get what this cartoon is trying to say. The money supply was increased by 42% in 22 months thanks to the fed....maybe those pesky Austrian economists were right? And passing stimulus (ie pumping more $$ into the economy) when the fed is trying to raise interest rates is self defeating. That is a valid critique. I have no doubt Daniel's heart is in the right place, but his cartoons are lacking in substance.
I hate talking in terms of "personal brand", but it's hard to avoid when someone's livelihood is largely tied up in independent journalism and writing.
Matt, this cartoonist is damaging your brand. You specialize in in-depth reporting that seeks to destroy the obviously self-serving head feints and deception that our corporate media wallows in.
This cartoon is shallow and reeks of the kind of economic understanding usually seen in 20 year old liberal arts majors.
There's too much text in this cartoon.
Less is more in political cartoons imo.
Weak and tired. This is played out.
The Federal Reserve Bank of the United States is the greatest driver of wealth inequality in the history of humanity.
Point your gaze in that direction, and let the cartoons fly.
This cartoon is arguing that it is corporate greed, something that is constant, that is responsible for current clusterfuck and not crazy policies by Brandon. Nah dawg.....
Well increasing prices isn't going to DECREASE profits now is it?
Economists have been warning about this for 2yrs... Republicans are brainwashed to believe that inflation comes from deficits. They never seem to know that while deficits went UP for the last 40yrs interest rates and inflation went down for the last 40yrs.
The two are not LINKED. Full Stop.. that is a LIE pushed out there by Corporate Media any time the government spends money on anything other than the rich or corporations or defense.
What is this cartoon even trying to say? The two things are certainly related, though I expect not at all in the way the cartoonist is insinuating.
