Proverbs 17:5

Whoever mocks the poor insults his Maker.

    I was really quite irritated by Scheer’s latest TV ad in which he assures us he has a plan to “reduce the cost of living”. What a piece of naked demagoguery. Leaving aside that inflation has been at historic lows for almost two decades, there are lots of things, good and bad, governments can do, but that’s not one of them unless they go for full-blown state planning and rationing, which I assume he didn’t mean. His delivery was very good, but what a Trumpian piece of nonsense. I’m surprised he’s not being swarmed for it, but I suppose none of the other leaders want to admit there are limits to their power to make us all happy and rich.

      Inflation is low only because the inflation data do not include housing prices, a ridiculous and arbitrary exclusion given that it is the single biggest cost to citizens by a mile. If housing were included in the data, inflation would be soaring.

      Scheer can reduce the cost of living by slashing immigration by 50%. That would instantly ease both the upward pressure on the housing market AND downward pressure on wages.

      But of course he won’t do that, so I’m not sure what his plan is.
