I agree, and mostly because I remember the stagflation of the seventies, and when a broker told me that "whenever anyone says, 'this market is different', put your hand on your wallet and head for the door."
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
E.g.:
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .

The reason why for inflation is simple - they're still running the presses. They printed 13 trillion in 2021. They've ordered somewhere between 7 and 10 Trillion for FY 2022. As long as they continue to expand the money supply, the inflation will continue to spiral out of control.
