Deficits and Interest rates  do large deficits cause inflation?

Wages & Inflation: 20 years   while wages have kept pace with the cost of goods and services over the past 20 years, Housing, Higher Education, and Medical Care are what are squeezing consumers. Over the past 20 years, energy doesn't even make the top 3.
