We've all been way too accepting of inflation

Editor's Note

It's time customers pushed back against price increases, according to Bloomberg's Chris Bryant and Andrea Felsted. Corporate profits shouldn’t be allowed to grow at the expense of the economy.

When inflation took off in the 1960s, people didn't just grumble about rising prices - they protested in front of local stores. It's time this generation of consumers push back harder against unnecessary price increases. Doing so might help avoid more destructive interest rate hikes.

Happily, the anti-inflation movement seems to be gaining steam.
