🧑‍💻 How to email like a boss:


📈 The case for patience on inflation: So far, the data still suggest that prices should stop spiking once (if?) the pandemic is brought under control globally.


🕰 Today has been a long time coming:

The current state of affairs has been a long time coming. Our instinct is to do something (anything!) to stop the short term pain.But the reality is that the worst of it will work itself out over time. This too shall pass.

😉 A month of inflation does not a crisis make:

America has a real chance to experience a genuine economic boom over the next couple years, one that might heal some of the lasting economic scars of the lost decade that followed the 2008 crash. Some moderate — and likely temporary — inflation is an acceptable risk to give that boom its best possible chance of happening.
