1. The BLS just today released a consumer price index flash (http://www.bls.gov/...): CPI is down 0.3%. Conclusion is that inflation is not out of control at the moment.
2. Dr. Paul Krugman's article today (http://www.nytimes.com/...), 14 Dec 2012, once again slamming the Deficit Scolds for a totally contrived debt crisis.
