This also devalues the dollar by 4% a month so figure what is ahead can you say 5 dollar loaf of bread. and if we do not settle the over the cliff problem 5 days after Chritmas 4 million people will lose unemployment.
 Quoting: Liberty 112


Paid $3.49 for a loaf of multi-grain yesterday... not that far to go. Can't find beef that's even worth a shit anymore. A while back I paid $9.99 a pound for some ribeyes that tasted like cardboard. Halfway decent steaks, when you can find them, $15-$20 per pound and they are usda select or choice. Soon beef will be a delicacy... all part of the plan for us serfs.

Anybody got any good spam recipes?

Best to just ignore all of that.

Neither you nor anyone you know is going to do anything that will change the Fed or its policies.

Every time a major banker scratches his rump, the fringe acts like we will be using dollars for wallpaper the next week. Hasn't happened yet, and probably won't happen later.

The people in charge intend to stay in charge, and while your life might get more expensive, it won't get so bad that you will have an excuse to break from routine.

You'll be pushed lower and lower, but never so far that you have a reasonable cause to cease participating. You'll go to work as normal, pay exorbitant bills as normal, and get progressively less for your money.

You'll just have to accept that as normal. It will always be normal, and DOOM will not save you. That is the biggest conspiracy theory secret yet: it won't hit the fan because there is no fan, just piles of what ought to be hitting it.

 Quoting: NonAlignedEntity


yes. they already do a bunch of them. they also bought a bunch of homes that people are paying on. they are also buying homes that have not even been built yet via treasury assets that will go to fannie freddie, and treasury assets that will build McMansions for crony dejour (think solyndra, or from the last administration, any MIC boondoggle firm)

The fed is the dealer (monetary policy) the politicians are the junkies (fiscal policy) The tax payers are the people who get screwed the most. but inflation hurts even people who dont pay taxes. Corporations are not people in this sense, as they dont pay taxes and are largely immune to suffering via inflation.

Yes it's way way way past time for Jubilee. But the Fed is powerless to implement that even if it wanted to.

Failing that you have to reduce the value of the debts via inflation.

And that is what the Fed, and European Central Bank, and the Bank of Japan, and probably a bunch of other central banks, are doing.

If they didn't do this, things would probably be worse, assuming we are trying to continue the current financial system.

What I think the Fed should REALLY do is to stop paying interest on the money that Fed member banks )and probably other account holders) deposit with the Fed. That would cause all this "printed" money out into circulation!

That is what is preventing hyperinflation, because all that printed money is being kept on deposit with the Fed. If the Fed quit paying interest on that, the banks would have to pump it into the economy instead. This would unleash hyperinflation.
