"financial expert" doesn't understand basic math | cnbc says higher wages are a benefit of inflation

In this rageface studios video, I will be discussing an article by financial news outlet CNBC, a division of NBC News and part of NBCUniversal, a Comcast company. On July 8, 2021, CNBC was mocked - mostly by conservative Twitter users - for having employee and "personal finance expert" Jessica Dickler posting an article with the title "The upside to inflation: rising wages," as in a wider sense, it can be seen as a defense of the Biden-Harris administration's largely generous (and arguably excessive) stimulus checks and other financial support, whilst ignoring the simple facts and maths of money and inflation; money itself has no value if you cannot purchase anything with it. The backlash led to CNBC having to change the title and key points of the article (without publicly announcing it), yet still keeping the original Twitter post up. In this video, I analyse the article, call out factual errors and inconsistencies, and read out Twitter responses.
