My wife is just constantly parroting that a significant portion of the price inflation being experienced is still due to "supply chain issues". I'm no economist but even I can smell the bullshit on that as if she were calling inflation "transitory". I'm not saying I believe there are zero supply chain issues. I am saying I know this is a problem in specific industries or with specific products (I'm pretty sure lumber has been one such example) but to suggest it's a cause of everything we are seeing is clearly not true. If anyone can give me some of the details that refute this idea and/or provide some sources, I'd appreciate it.
