As far as I know the only part that's inflative "by design" is the mining DAG size, partly to motivate miners to eventually support switching to a different/better system. The problem being few (none?) of these cryptocurrencies can currently scale to the processing capacity needed for global credit card systems or stock trading. The solutions are in development, and ETH is basically ensuring there will be a somewhat gentle and consistent push to move on and not just flail indecisively like Bitcoin. It is a risk point, but I expect if the development doesn't go well there will be an alternative push to defuse/delay the time bomb instead.

Would love to hear the specifics about your concerns though!
