Because Economics is political, inconsistent contradictory economic measurements has resulted in much confusion.

The great inflation of the 1970's made the CPI a less valuable and inappropriate measure
 for calculating wage growth.

During the analysis inflation went from high to average to low making the BLS generated CPI inappropriate.

The inconsistence among academic economists to measure economic activity
has resulted in far right political control and it could cause excessive social stability.
