The Case for Disinflation

Thank you. It is a pleasure to be here tonight. Quite frankly, this time every four years, it’s nice to be almost anywhere but Washington, D.C. And, since you’ve just endured the Super Tuesday limelight, I’ll bet you all know what I mean. The Olympics are over and the baseball season has yet to begin. And life just wouldn’t be the same without some contest to stir the blood. So I suppose we should be grateful for these Tuesday night events.
