CPI from 1800 to 2005; 1967 = 100; you could call this a measurement of inflation (or currency debasement, or both, or however you want to look at it); red line is annual; black line is cumulative; could this be why the government is printing the heck out of greenbacks? In other words, if they didn't issue a whole bunch more dollars, what would be the probability all prices would crash in the near future?

I know I have talked about land going up in price and hyper-inflation coming. The other side of the coin is...if we crash (run out of cash printing ability).. one penny could buy a loaf of bread again.

As I have said before (I think), this thing could still go either way. Deflationary depression or hyperinflationary depression.
Strange things are happening so fast, who knows?

No one knows, including the new Prez and friends...

The Prez don't know squat about anything at this point in time...however, I did hear him say he "SAVED" over 150,000 jobs last month.
