ABSTRACT
The article reports on measures to control inflation in the U.S. It is said that economists debated whether much higher inflation was inevitable when the Federal Reserve started printing trillions of dollars to buy Treasury debt and subprime mortgages. Mainstream economists argued that inflation would not catch fire as long as the labor market remained slack.
