In unveiling the Trudeau government’s latest $8.9 billion plan not to fight inflation but to temporarily help some Canadians survive it, Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland took a not-so-veiled shot at Conservative leadership race frontrunner Pierre Poilievre.

In a speech to the Empire Club in Toronto Thursday, without mentioning him by name, Freeland slammed Poilievre as “economically illiterate” for what she called his irresponsible criticism of the Bank of Canada and its governor, Tiff Macklem, whom Poilievre has said he will fire if he ever becomes prime minister.

BUT….But it was a bad idea for Freeland to raise the issue of economic illiteracy at all, given that her boss, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, said during last year’s federal election campaign that he doesn’t think about monetary policy.

That means he doesn’t think about inflation. When asked about possible strategies for addressing inflation while on the campaign trail, Trudeau responded: “I don’t think about monetary policy.”

The Body of the story at the above link.

….And yet the prime minister tells us he doesn’t think about monetary policy, meaning he doesn’t think about inflation.

That’s being “economically illiterate” on steroids.

She is spending $8.9 billion to fight inflation? I never knew that throwing more money around helps with inflation. I guess I was economically illiterate too.
