For the economy as a whole... or at least that's what I've been
taught.  Individual people may occasionally get screwed over, yes -
especially those on fixed incomes, as you pointed out.  This isn't
"fair" to the individual who happens to be a high school dropout and
working at McDonalds and therefore doesn't get a raise that's large
enough to keep up with inflation, nor is it "fair" to people who lived
longer than they expected (or failed to plan appropriately) and are
therefore running out of money.  But who says that an economy has to
be fair?
