Why the government understates inflation, according to ShadowStats’ John Williams (Pt. 1/2)

Using the same data collection and calculation methodologies as the Bureau of Labor Statistics used in the 1980s, John Williams, the founder of ShadowStats, determined that headline inflation should be much higher than 5.4%, the latest June release.
In fact, speaking to David Lin, anchor for Kitco News, adjusted inflation should be closer to 13.5% and is only going to get higher.
