Employing the concept of doublethink, the Party gives ironic names to its branches as a way to euphemize what they actually are:
The Ministry of Truth, which concerned itself with news, entertainment, education, and the fine arts. The Ministry of Peace, which concerned itself with war. The Ministry of Love, which maintained law and order. And the Ministry of Plenty, which was responsible for economic affairs. Their names, in Newspeak: Minitrue, Minipax, Miniluv, and Miniplenty. – George Orwell 1984

Miniplenty: The economy is doing so well we’ve decided to keep interest rates at zero! And it’s not our fault.
So don’t worry, "We are on correct path comrades." - Vereteno
