Richard Curtin wrote about inflationary psychology in Barron’s

Richard Curtin wrote a commentary for Barron’s describing the upward spiral of prices and wages, a situation called “inflationary psychology.”

Prices and wages will continue to spiral upward until the cumulative erosion in inflation-adjusted incomes causes the economy to collapse in recession.
