Think feds just OK a 2% inflation to our money???

I personally think it already is more... since food already went up by 20% plus... can't eat gas.

P.S. who else is going to cry when eventually a loaf of bread will cost $1000 USD & the min. pay becomes $20/hr that everyone gets???

The Feds target inflation rate is a joke and underestimates what the real inflation rate. If the Fed reported what real inflation was there would be more people in the streets and asking for the elimination of the Fed.

The Fed is in charge or reporting the inflation rate?

I thought that was done by a government agency like BLS, when was the Fed given that responsibility?

Sorry, but the real inflation rate is still a joke and protects the Fed is what I was trying to refer to. And to think that 12 men can actually micro-manage the economy and interest rates in the biggest deception played on citizens.

I don’t think the Market will mind high asset prices as long as the Economy continues getting a steady dose of Gov’t/Taxpayer bailouts. The Market would rather milk the Gov’t/Taxpayer than be managed by the FED.

The FED is also worried about the natural deflation of wages, which is supposed to accompany asset price deflation!
