cebuan asks:
"Where's my $16k Volvo,"

Glad you asked: You can buy a frozen turkey for 33 cents a pond. A 15 pound turkey isless than five bucks. Add some store brand vegges and you can have a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner for a family of four for less than the price of a pack of cigarettes.

Our musical chairs stock market is not real. Getout and into cash or precious metals before the next recession. In 2008, the stock market went from 14,000 to 7,000. People who timed it have seen their stock value go from 7,000 to 28,000. A better example of how our economy is precious metals. In 1919 you could buy a cow with a $20 gold piece. Today you can buy a cow with that same gold piece. A $20 federal reserve note will buy you about 4 pound of good hamburg, not the cow.

Federal Reserve: Two lies in one term. It is not federal and there is no reserve.

Volvos are made in Sweden.

As to your $16,000 Volvo, you can buy a nice Volvo for 29 of those $20 gold pieces.

the problem is a lot of that what we think is monetary inflation really is nothing more then demand rising and falling .

when the weather destroys the orange crop prices go up , when we stop buying oranges they come down .

oil is a prime example . we paid more 12 years ago then today . what was scarce is now abundant and prices reflect that
