He says it's a one time blip and then goes on to question whether any risk of inflation is possible because workers aren't demanding higher wagers and no one is passing through higher costs on to the retail level. It's just hilarious. There's a margin squeeze, but wages aren't going up so there's no risk that companies will raise prices. As if wages are their only input costs. There are no capital costs, no regulatory expenses, no increased SG&A from Obamacare, and all of increase in COGs can be magically be put paid for with lower profits that companies are not making.

Its like he's never actually done a P&L on anything.

The monster under Krugman's bed is really Keynes, and when Krugman falls asleep, John Maynard is going to suffocate Krugman with satchels full of fiat.
