The Bloomberg news agency is offering some advice to America as inflation soars: spend more and borrow more. Social media isn’t buying it, though.

In what appears to perhaps be another attempt by the Biden-supporting corporate media to downplay the arduous inflationary environment which is sapping the income of ordinary Americans, Bloomberg suggests that U.S. consumers should follow the lead of their Argentinian counterparts in a country where the annual inflation rate reportedly hits 50 percent.

One of the recommended inflation-era survival tactics from the Bloomberg reporters based on the Argentine model is to spend your paycheck immediately because “money that sits in the bank is losing value.”

“As a result, many Argentines spend their paychecks as soon as they receive them, carting away weeks worth of groceries in a single shopping trip, even if some of it — excess meat, chicken, fish — will sit in the freezer for months,” claimed an article published by the news outlet co-founded by billionaire ex-New York City Mayor and failed 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg.

“The practical application of this technique in the U.S., where inflation isn’t quite high enough to warrant such a mad pay-day dash, is to expedite plans to buy big-ticket items.”

Borrowing lots of money is also a good thing, especially for those big purchases, the article, which is headlined “For Americans Shocked by Inflation, Argentines Have Some Advice,” explains.

“If you can get a loan at a rate below inflation — something that’s possible for many Americans today — go for it. Inflation will make it easier to repay the loan in coming months and years.”

According to the U.S. Labor Department, inflation under the big-spending Biden administration has hit a nearly 40-year high, which is demonstrated by significant price increases at the pump, at the supermarket, and throughout the economy generally.

A recent Gallup poll suggests that nearly half of Americans said inflationary prices created some form of financial hardship for their households, while 10% described it as a severe hardship.

“The consumer price index rose 6.8% in November from a year ago, according to a new Labor Department report released Friday, marking the fastest increase since June 1982, when inflation hit 7.1%…The Labor Department said the increases for food and energy were the fastest 12-month gains in at least 13 years,” Fox Business reported.

Responses to the Bloomberg essay are rolling in, and they express skepticism, to say the least.
