With inflation in mind, how do certain fast food restaurants maintain a “dollar menu” when other items on the menu, that contain mostly the same ingredients, raise in price?

this guy doesn't understand what inflation is lol. He's just regurgitating off a textbook but don't understand how inflation exist and what causes it to change.
Magically creating money or IOUs and handing them to banks seems like a very inefficient way to control monetary inflation

So given the yearly inflation rate between 2016 and 2019, it was 377% every year, meaning that prices increased 4.77-fold every year.
Yup inflation for food and everything else except how much you got paid. At the end of the day they said buy the same thing for more while staying with the same pay
