Has there ever been a situation where a central bank was unable to curb monetary inflation, absent supply disruptions? (I.e. inflation due to expectations or currency activities, not exploded factories or farms.)

I am unable to find a definition for REKT - is it an acronym?

Rekt is a slang version of "wrecked" that is sometimes used in multiplayer gaming. It refers to one player or team getting severely beaten by an opponent. It may describe a match that wasn't even close or an attack in which one side got demolished by the other.

I sometimes wonder if the supply siders have it right and juicing the economy will produce enough growth to grow us out of the debt to GDP ratio problem and related problems like the 70% funded Social Security system.

Well, it's worked about 50% of the time so far, for corporations and stockholders, at least. Which indeed makes them a little more generous come the Xmas charity drives.

All you have to do is make people buy more. W said it himself.

I guess it's old-fogey to be pwned - or maybe we realized we all already are.

If you want to juice the economy, giving cash to wealthy people and corporations who are already sitting on piles of cash is a terrible way to do it. It is however, a great way to juice the worth of the wealthy people and corporations who fund supply-siders.

...and politicians.

Too bad the demand-siders are starting to flex their enormous muscles and knock the whole self-serving system on its keister.

So you're saying appreciation and value and commodity pricing are not linear across the ages? That sweeping straight-line projections might be nonsensical? Say it ain't so!

In my experience... no... especially when it comes to Real Estate where I live in California... quite a wild ride.

In 2009-12 it was if 20 years of appreciation had vanished... simply gone.

Now it has far surpassed the peak of 2007... over 60 straight quarters of appreciation...

What goes up fluctuates and I have seen several reversals...
