Wydaje mi się, że dzieje się to w Europie od około 2008 roku.

Prosty przykład: „standardowy” rozmiar czekolady mlecznej wynosił 100g (3,52 uncji). Potem nagle zmniejszono go do 80g (2,82 uncji). Cena i szerokość/długość pozostały takie same, tylko stały się o 20% cieńsze.
True story! Same with butter 250g to 200g without price change.

Transitory, it's fine.


I'm so bearish on the west.

Who here thinks hyperinflation?

I think it's very possible.

Apologies Larry, but is this sarcasm? Didn't you think there would be stagflation?
Yes, I do think stagflation will occur. The fat lady hasn't sung yet. Keep in mind the Biden admin hasn't put their bad policies in place yet. I'm specifically referring to the "infrastructure" bill and the higher taxes they want.

But I'm saying this is sarcasm of having a high rate of inflation yet it is a surprise to most people. It's not directed to people here.

Who would have thought that the Fed printing trillions and the govt giving out handouts as we've never seen in our lifetime would cause inflation?

This is far from over yet.

As a side note, I just had a 1 year CD mature that was 1.76% to now 0.76% do you think any person in their right mind would put new money in bonds, CDs, savings, or money market accounts now?

The only even remotely safe option today are dividend or preferred stocks. Which of course pushes the market even higher.

TINA - There Is No Alternative.

The only interesting government bond is I bonds at 3.54%. Better deal than TIPs ATM.

Though are limited to $10k per SS #/EIN.

Bonds that lock in a loss in real terms.

Sounds attractive.

The only way to invest in today's market is a very uneven barbell approach.

Cash and cash-like instruments on one end, with all out on the risk curve and risky bets (ie cryptos). Even with the valuation of the market where it is.

The traditional safe options get you crushed. Lovely environment to invest in.

I believe we are witnessing a massive hyperinflationary event underway as prices continue to skyrocket in all asset classes. Of course, this doesn't happen in 1 day or 1 week, but over the course of a year or two.

Meanwhile, the Fed continues to say inflation is under control. :rofl:

I've extracted some of the posts from the other INFLATION thread -- please use this thread to POST YOUR EXPERIENCE in your area/country/city of higher prices.

The mainstream narrative is that inflation is under control -- I contend that it is running in the double-digits and as always, the media and their sycophants are lying.

Of course, if you have a local experience of LOWER PRICES, feel free to post that too.

The only place I've found lower prices are in consumer electronics like televisions. Got make that propaganda easily accessible!
I was going to refloor the upstairs to my museum this year so that I could open the upper level of the building. A half inch sheet of OSB was $10 cdn last year. As of today, it's $61, but not available anywhere.

last night had a building contractor/builder - small operation - he said there's no problem getting wood in time, said he met up with a guy that cuts trees, and that fellow said they can barely find sawmills willing to buy (they have that much wood)
he claimed it's the largest distributors (like 4 or 5 companies) in the US that are causing this wood shortage/price increase.
and then there's guys that are running on the last skid of lumber, they could be out of wood by the end of the week if their shipment doesn't come in (as of a few weeks ago, anyway)

another fellow works at a small lumber supply place, he said that they are getting a lot of smaller orders (his thoughts, people aren't building large projects as much, and doing more re-models/repairs/etc... instead of doing a complete new building)
this sounds like a great opportunity to start a new distributorship.

Generally I have the same feeling that we will witness hyperinflation. Live in Poland and I can tell you that average chicken meat prices have increased by 35% since begining of the year...crazy.

Will the federal reserve have the guts to raise interest rates?

I am tipping no; they are cowards.
I think you might win this bet.

It’s a good thing to think about. It could color my investment strategy.

They don’t want blood on their hands… But I’m convinced they all still think their manipulation scam works.

I’m betting “transitory.” :rofl:

Maybe raising rates is part of their plan.
Raise rates, crush asset holders, buy up all of the assets.
Great reset here we come.

This has been my thought the whole time.

Their actions lead me to believe it.

Intentional crash, combined with intentionally forcing everyone to take on more debt (like the PPP loans) and then wham!

They certainly seem to be operating as a tool of the great reset.

I have been saying this for a while now… There are basically two kinds of places in the world. Those that don’t care about prosperity anymore and are proudly socialist, and countries that even with socialistic views, know better than to embrace it yet.

What do you choose?

The Fed is one of the biggest players in the Reset.

I'm afraid the goal is to basically have everything crash and then have government take it all over - but to avoid the bad public perception of that, they will just use "private" firms that work on behalf of the government.

More profit for the insiders that way too, a win-win for anyone corrupt at the top.

This is all speculation though. I hope I'm wrong :D

I'm pretty done with trying to buy anything right now.

Looked at a '11 Toyota FJ Cruiser, with 130k on it. It had some modifications, but the dealer wanted $27k for it.

RVs/Trailers are on fire right now, with people FIGHTING (yes FIGHTING) over trailers with water damage right now.

Real Estate has been beat to death, bit I am seeing prices come down here.

The only assets I see that seem stable are ambulances and School Busses, but that is totally different story. HA!

Yeh you might be right.

It's basically the end of the USA at this point. They're self destructive. Nothing self destructive can survive.

The government and beneficiaries have completely abandoned any idea of benefiting society.
