All Woke Up: Woke tips to survive inflation

Empower Wisconsin | March 23, 2022

Tired of rapidly rising prices? Take the bus.

That’s the sage advice on how to beat inflation not seen in 40 years from one woke economics professor.

In a Bloomberg.com op-ed, the New School’s Teresa Ghilarducci lays out all kinds of helpful ways to tackle inflation — from using mass transportation to going vegetarian to cutting back on pet chemo treatments.

The New York City-based New School, by the way, is committed to the woke ideas of “equity” and “building social justice into social science.”  Aka Big Government solutions to problems created by Big Government.

As The College Fix reports, Ghilarducci insists her tips make good sense for anyone making less than $280,000 a year.

“To deal with gas prices, it’s worth reconsidering public transportation if it’s an option where you live,” Ghilarducci wrote. After all, mass transport fares are up only 8 percent compared to 38 percent for gasoline.

And “when it comes to food,” the professor advises, “don’t be afraid to explore” some good, old-fashioned “tasty meat substitutes” such as veggies, lentils and/or beans as meat prices soar 14 percent. “Plan to cut out the middle creature and consume plants directly. It’s a more efficient, healthier and cheaper way to get calories,” Ghilarducci adds.

Perhaps the return of cat or dog food for the elderly and others on fixed incomes that have seen their Social Security checks devoured by escalating prices?

Speaking of pets, Ghilarducci recommends:

“If you’re one of the many Americans who became a new pet owner during the pandemic, you might want to rethink those costly pet medical needs. It may sound harsh, but researchers actually don’t recommend pet chemotherapy — which can cost up to $10,000 — for ethical reasons.”

Nothing takes care of inflation faster than euthanasia.

What the nutty professor overlooks is the fact that many Americans — making far less than $280,000 a year, or the $144,000 average professor salary at the New School  — are already cutting back on a variety of things to pay for the essentials.

That’s what people in the Real School do. They don’t need spending tips from woke economics professors stuck in the Big Government bubble.
