in Inflation, Not from the Onion

Here’s a letter to the Wall Street Journal:


French president Emmanuel Macron wants to fight inflation by drenching the economy with more money (“Macron Seeks to Step Up France’s Inflation Fight,” July 8). Mon Dieu! Let’s hope that M. Macron doesn’t become a firefighter, for were he to do so he’d fight fires by drenching them with gasoline.
