Interested? Well, it’s quite a clever idea. Change the way inflation is calculated. With that fudge, the US government can make inflation look like it’s increasing less rapidly and, therefore, can slow down the cost of living increases in its payments. Sure, it’s a scam, but it’s a scam that saves the USG $220 billion dollars through a soft default on its promises, so it’s a good scam, right? Look for more great scams like this in the days to come!
