Lindsay Lohan is a monetarist

Via Jason Linkins; the joke of the day.  So Lohan twitted the following:
"Have you guys seen food and gas prices lately? U.S. $ will soon be worthless if the Fed keeps printing money!"
Apparently she was paid by a group called the National Inflation Association (with that name I'm sure they are in favor of inflation).  Forget that the causes of inflation had nothing to do with the Fed printing money, what is really hilarious is that conservative/monetarists chose Lohan as the speaker of their cause.  It must be a question of credibility!


  1. I tend to think of the Kardashians as the real go-to resources for interpretation of the Fed's monetary policies.
