Inflation warning signs are flashing.

One prominent economist, Larry Summers, a Democrat, recently Tweeted that “until the fed and treasury fully recognize the inflation reality, they are unlikely to deal with it successfully.”

Economist Summers, a former Secretary of Treasury, notes that when the Biden Administration formulated its budget in February, it expected two percent inflation in 2021.

But today inflation is running at a 13-year high of 5.4 percent. Go to the grocery store or gas station: Food,  energy, as well as shelter costs are rising rapidly.

Polls show that Inflation has become a top concern for many Americans, and some expect inflation will stay high.

Question:  Are worrisome  wage-price spirals building in the economy?
