I read your 2020 annual letter with interest, @chamath. Odd it was published in late May, but we’re all busy.

I find the fixation on 1970s inflation puzzling for several reasons. Inflation really wasn't that high, certainly not by the standards of "historically memorable inflations." Also, high inflation was good for a lot of people. Student loan debt disappeared! Home ownership spiked!
