Great article as always, Russell. I am sensing a blind spot however with respect to your understanding of whether the US is actually equipped to slow down inflation back to <2% for any sustainable measure of time (5 years, 10 years, 15 years, etc.), due to the total national debt outstanding, increasing size of annual deficits (which are forecasted to increase still further), and the corresponding increase in interest expense.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, and happy holidays to everyone
