Eat lentils and let your pets die of cancer! Bloomberg is slammed for out-of-touch op-ed lecturing Americans earning less than $300,000 on how to beat inflation
A March 13 op-ed by Teresa Ghilarducci was criticized online for its suggestions on how to deal with inflation
- Ghilarducci suggested switching to vegetables to avoid inflated meat prices
- She also posed taking public transportation because prices are only up 8% compared to 38% for gasoline
- The piece also declares that the cost-of-living crisis most affects those who earn less than $300K
- Politicians and other public figures took to Twitter to criticize the piece
- US Consumer Price Index rose 7.9 percent in February from a year ago, the most since June 1982
- Biden blames Putin, though the latest report does not capture the full impact of Russia’s invasion
- Soaring prices are affecting food, clothing, shelter and other basic necessities for regular Americans
- Gasoline has continued to skyrocket since the February report, suggesting inflation will only get worse
Bloomberg raised eyebrows with an op-ed telling Americans earning less than $300,000 to eat less meat and cut back on chemotherapy for pets to beat spiraling inflation.
The business news outlet’s tweet that promoted the story also pointed out, ‘nobody said this would be fun,’ with scholar Teresa Ghilarducci’s article offering some very dark advice.
In the widely-mocked piece, headlined ‘Inflation Stings Most If You Earn Less Than $300k,’ Ghilarducci, a NYC-based labor and retirement expert, suggests switching to vegetables as a way of avoiding inflated meat prices.
‘Though your palate may not be used to it, tasty meat substitutes include vegetables (where prices are up a little over 4%, or lentils and beans, which are up about 9%),’ she writes. ‘Plan to cut out the middle creature and consume plants directly. It’s a more efficient, healthier and cheaper way to get calories.’
And for new pet owners, Ghilarducci advises ‘to rethink those costly pet medical needs’ by cutting back on cancer treatments for much loved furry-friends.
‘It may sound harsh,’ she lectured. ‘But researchers actually don’t recommend pet chemotherapy — which can cost up to $10,000 — for ethical reasons.’
Ghilarducci also tells readers to reconsider public transportation to avoid gas prices, pointing out that public transportation prices are only up 8% compared to 38% for gas.
