Inflationary Recession or Dark Energy

Raising interest rates will slow inflation—as it puts less money in people’s hands. But inflation itself is ultimately deflationary. When prices go up consumers spend less. That’s why an inflation can easily segue into recession or what is known as an “inflationary recession.” The same kind of overlapping occurs between liberalism and libertarianism as far as political ideology is concerned. Libertarians don’t like regulation, but many also adhere to conservative positions on abortion. They argue for the second amendment as it relates to guns but don’t afford women the same freedoms when it comes to their bodies. Inflation is market-orientated libertarianism. There are consequences to having money to spend. Guns result in mass shootings like Columbine, Sandy Hook and Parkland. Roe v. Wade was liberal as well as libertarian. It aligned individual rights with a progressive political outlook. Ideally these countervailing notions could exemplify the notion of checks and balances, occurring  between the executive, judicial and congressional branches of government. But the current environment is characterized by the kind of dark energy that's expanding the universe to the point where objects are too far from each other to emit light.
