Dec. 9 (Bloomberg) -- In the years since the financial
crisis, Republican politicians have increasingly embraced a
“hard money” critique of the Federal Reserve.
They’ve warned that its policies are too loose and
dangerously inflationary, even as inflation has stayed well
below historical levels. Now some conservatives are arguing that
criticizing loose money should be a more prominent part of their
case to voters. It’s a winning issue, they say, and Republicans
should make the most of it.
