A good one from Vox, if this subject interests you. Some links in here I really want to read. The inflation of the 1970s seems to loom large to modern economists. I always thought it was tied to the oil price spike and spending on the Vietnam War. Some of it could be other post-WW II demographic trends. Nobody seems to mention what appears to be massive incompetence of the Nixon administration, on nearly all fronts. Is there anything Nixon touched that didn’t turn into a massive crisis?
