Milton Friedman, proud father of global misery

Inflation is the one form of taxation that can be imposed without legislation.”   —   Milton Friedman

(I agree that inflation is very similar to a tax on the consumer, but “imposed” seems to be a strange choice of words.  It makes it sound like inflation is applied or arranged, instead of it simply occurring, as a result of a variety of economic factors.  Hmm!  Since Friedman was the Economics expert I guess this should really make us think!  Keep questioning things, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 07/24/11

Visual Description:  Lesley(?) laying down the law!

NHYEHP  =  HYPHEN,  ETANBE  =  BEATEN,  ADRYFT  =  DRAFTY,  NICICL  =  CLINIC,  YBSBAH  =  SHABBY,  DILRAA  =  RADIAL   —   Giving us:  YEETDATCLSARL

Clue/Question:  The teacher thought that her questions for the verbal U.S. Geography test were this.

Answer:  CLEARLY STATED

(Not too “shabby”!  Another good Sunday Jumble.  I really liked seeing “hyphen”.  I don’t remember having seen it before.  Maybe ralis95 can let us know if it’s new, or not.  And, I had a tough time getting “radial”.  I kept expecting “air” to be part of the word.  I’m pretty sure we have had “radial” before, but under a different scrambling I’d guess.  The answer letters were scrambled better today, than they were yesterday.  And, I do like the longer answers.  But, I think the combination of the map, and the phrasing of the teacher’s admonishment, made the answer fairly obvious.  Eh!  Whadayagonnado?  No one said yer uncle had to clearly state anything.  Be well, do good, friends.)   —   YUR
