Merrill Matthews, Ph.D.,

With U.S. Treasury Secretary Jane Yellen saying that inflation would be “a good thing” for us, I ask Dr. Merrill Matthews, resident scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation, about the situation. [See: Yellen Admits Inflation Is About To Surge But Says It Will Be ‘Plus For Society’s Point Of View’]

Also we discuss the disaster of Biden paying people not to work and how that is affecting economic growth as “Biden’s Backdoor Scheme for Effectively Raising the Minimum Wage,” was a recent column by Matthews.

Merrill Matthews, Ph.D., is a resident scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation, a research-based, public policy “think tank.” He is a health policy expert and opinion contributor at The Hill. He also serves on the Texas Advisory Committee of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
