Our wealth has been redistributed on the stealth. You can't raise the standard of living worldwide as easy as you can lower the standard in the developed world. Call it inflation, call it offshoring, call it enviromental activism, call it Ben's printing press, call it corporate greed; it all ends the same way-third world status for all citizenry and wealth and power concentrated in the hands of the new aristocracy. Obama will soon go on another redistribution tour, on tens of millions of our hard earned dollars, where he will once again hand out our "stash", this time in Africa.

christ you scumsucking welfare queens
living off the sweat of others who didnt have the choice to subsidize the fake independance and freedom you keep dreaming like your racist mother told you to

you probably have the ignorant audacity to think youve actually paid for what youve got; let alone earned the coins you were gifted to jangle

In 1991 I bought a bunch of carabiners through Campmor mail order.

Don't remember the exact price, but ovals were around five bucks if you bought ten or more.

Today they are $4.99

I don't think the price of most climbing gear has changed much over the past 20+ years.

FACT:Inflation is not rising.

Inflation at the Producer level is below the Fed's target of 2%, currently at 1.10%



Inflation at the Consumer level is below the Fed's target of 2%, currently at 1.7%



Now STFU&GBTW, maybe if you made more money you wouldn't be an insufferable bitch.

Thank gawd! I'd hate to drop my sushi in somebody's wine because I couldn't afford the chalk I need to keep a grip on it!

Thanks pointing that out Goatboy.

Of course, the Obama haters won't care about data and will blame Obama for the sun going down at night.

If you think things are bad now just wait.

We have been holding down inflation for decades, but China and India now competing for energy resources will blow the lid off.
Mark my words.

Invest in equities, not bonds (or bondo).

It's not really "inflation," but devaluation of the currency due to policies of the Federal Reserve System. As long as the Fed tries to print it's way to prosperity, this trend will continue.

A recent conversation with my "friendly banker," whom I've known for over 25 years: he indicated that banks currently have more money available than they can ever hope to lend but the Dodd-Frank Act prevents them from making loans! It's a sucker bet in any case. All the Central Banks are printing increasingly worthless currency, but led by Japan and the U.S. The idea of "deflation" simply scares the schitt outa' them. Soorer or later, there will be a collapse of the Dollar, the Yen, and all other Fiat Currencies. The lure of the printing press is simply too great for politicians of any ilk to ignore and resist.
