Hyperinflation has been a doomsday scenario for modern economies throughout the last century. In all of these failed countries (Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Hungary, Yugoslavia, etc.) there have been uniform warning signs, the same signs that we are starting to see today in the U.S.

      Hyper Inflation brought to the USA by the current Democrat controlled House of Representative, US Senate, White House through those who voted for them and those who also participated in the blatant totalitarianism are responsible for irreversible economic disaster that has just begun.

      @liam morgans in venezuela the currency units increased alongside with wages and economic growth Today in US only the currency units are increasing and they are going mainly to corporations, hedge funds and rich, but the wages and the economic growth are not increasing... Inflation will be transitory if the pandemic is still around(and it will be around until 2023)..

    Is it hyperinflation if the whole world is inflating at about the same rate (not just America did stimulus payments). I figured something like that is dependent on how that currency is relative to the rest of the world

    I don't think that USD being a global currency cushions it significantly from effects of inflation. The USD can be traded globally while still the prices of consumer goods skyrocket. For example, even in the US, the prices of consumer goods in Bay Area are 1.5 times higher than in the midwest.

    12:15 There have been very large increases in the prices of firearms and especially ammunition. Common calibers like 9mm and 5.56mm have at least tripled in the past year. It's likely due to greatly increased demand, but the reasons for that demand make it somewhat more ominous.

    Sad truth... Since Covid, the FED started printing trillions. The ( illegitimate...) Biden administration printed and spent even more since january... And instead of stopping this, they'll do the wrong thing, as leftists always did! They continue printing money and try to keep everything running by creating and spending more and more... Which will destroy the economy by hyperinflation... Instead they should stop this! Take money out of the economy! But they won't... They got in power by cheating, the worst crime in US history, and will cause the worst economical disaster in US history...

    As the US prints money (Sells Bonds) it lends it to others and some of them see it as a hedge against weakness in their own balance sheets. But doesn’t this increase risk to the US I hear you say? Yes. Because the economy won’t run by itself, the US has Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac who lend the excess money to Americans on easy credit terms, then converts the debt risk to equity by securitising it. But the risk hasn’t gone away, hence the US government de-listing and bailing them out during the GFC. So the risk is squarely back on the US economy again.

    It is free when you live in a country that controls it's own currency and 70% of the world's assets are in it, USD. We just do money printing for the rich instead of the poor. Sad. EU makes it so they can't run a deficit over 3%... look at history of depression in USA and also look at Japan's situation, people fearmongered about them, but it's nonsense. Venezuela is literally our fault, from installing dictators to sanctioning them terribly. Austerity doesn't work. Get real. He downplays the inflation being caused by supply chain breakdown. Modern Monetary Theory. IF ANYTHING USA is a cautionary tale about not doing enough for small businesses and people, 100,000 small businesses plus died during lock downs with no compensation as government debated 1 time checks. You want to know how to turn it around? Go gang busters on building infrastructure and investing in projects with other countries. Look at China. In fact, China is the only country I'm aware of that actually had growth this year on target. Belt & road

    Red pill: MMT works. Money printing and inflation are totally uncorrelated. The "elites" realized this at least a decade ago, if not centuries ago. There is no inflation unless they decide there will be inflation. The Fed could print nothing, yet we could have 100% inflation, if they want it that way. The only question is: Who is going to be given the printed money? Us or them?

    But even if we short money, how will it help us. Let's say we borrow 200$ from the bank and buy a phone, once hyperinflation hits that phone will now cost 1000$. We then sell the phone for that amount and return our debt but still the extra money we have will not benefit us much since the price of everything else will also rise exponentially. So how will this help us??

    Well I think the crucial difference is that there hasn’t been a significant drop in the productive capacity of any given nation. Unlike circumstances like a natural disaster or a war where buildings are damaged and destroyed, the problem with the COVID crisis is that it leaves factories and offices empty. This certainly leads to a fall in production, but the productive capacity hasn’t been (significantly) altered because the capital machinery and work space isn’t damaged or unusable, it just isn’t or wasn’t being used because of lockdowns

Saying “the plumber charged me $200 JUST to unclog my sink” sounds like maybe you think he should have done it for 50 bucks. Next time I suggest you spend a couple of days wading around in your own excrement before you call a plumber and perhaps you’ll be more appreciative of those skills 😎.

    You could have said that the US exports its deficits (managed by printing more money), which is probably the largest export of the US. In simple words, the excess supply of fresh printed money that revs up the US economy is held by other countries which insulates from direct inflation.

      Actually that is never a choice for the government. The reckless spending is how they stay in power (it's all poorly disguised bribery). See CGPGrey's Rules For Rulers to understand why the government must issue bribes to stay in power. The only solution is not to use a government currency and strictly limit the government's ability to regulate industry (outside of worker protections) so that they can't. Unfortunately this will result in lesser stability. Fortunately, it will improve efficiency which may compensate adequately.

They offloaded the effects of printing in 2010.....it will happen again. They do not even have to try.

    In the past six months many items have increased drastically. A 500 ft spool of #12 THHN copper wire has gone from under $40 to $100. A 2 x 4, 8 feet long has gone from less than $2 to just under $10, and that is just the tip of the iceberg. I have a feeling that it will get worse. For those of you who don't believe me, just look to the 70's and 80's. A doubling of oil prices from $5/bbl to $10/bbl just about killed this country economically. Then there was the systemic inflation in the mid 70's to the mid 80's where people thought that 14% inflation was horrible. I had a manager in the early 80's who thought he got a good deal on the mortgage for his house when it came with an 18% interest rate. It is impossible to triple the amount of currency in circulation without some fallout.

    My notes, 2:30 cycle C&E of hyperinflation. (1)somekind of distabilizing event; be it a war or natural disaster, real pandemic or fake pandemic or (2)a piece of a policy that leads to a sharp decline in productive capacity which is (3) corrected with stimulus measures funded by the printing of money. 6:10 what is the price of price? price is the mechanism of finding agreement of different people with different setting of priority.

    All currencies fail in the end and it doesn’t look too good right now either. You can save you money in gold, silver, real estate plus many more things that remain valuable regardless what currency is doing. They cannot print currencies indefinitely.

    Considering how wealth is power is corruption, I'd aruge its been here since the late 90s, the cocaine money of the 80s gave us as bubble of protection while big biz cartels and IP mafias offshored local wealth, now the nose powder green backs are gone the economy can't hide the inflation that's always been there. Too big to to fail is the nature of our market that's founded squarely on monopolies, so what happens when monopolies no longer need local markets or in other words when local market are disposable. And since people can not bypass IP law to create independent markets to make a living they are forced to cater to the cartels and mafias... who then treat them as disposable commodities for short term gain..... they move from region to the next devouring its wealth while ensuring they profit off the regions they destroyed. Its mad empire building by stateless kings and nobles who hide in their big biz cartels... capitalism should have taken us away from this maddens of highly concentrated market feudalism... but we wanted a "free market" controlled by monopolies.......humans......

    There is a economic phenomenon that has not existed on the scale of the US. You in essence have a duel economy exciting at the same time. one for the upper strata of the us and one for the lower. BUT the upper strata is connected to the global economy and is not solely influenced by the us. While the lower strata is almost totally economically localized TO the US. What does this mean we will find out probably in a year ish.

    If people get more money, demand will rise and inflation will follow. That will happen if you don't save up your money. If hyperinflation is about to happen, start with rations. Not the kind of rationing during war times but a more easier one. Keep the rationing for some years until most retards who wants 16 cars have changed their mind and don't want the 16 cars anymore. If you succeeded, congratulation! You defeated hyperinflation by using rations against shortage!

    1. Craigs List
      Craigs List

      Rationing goods and services would cause hyper-deflation, which is just as bad as hyper inflation. I believe the reason why we are not in a hyper inflation state even though we are printing money is due to idea that we are in a deflationary situation. With less money being spent on goods and services, causing all those business to cut production and cut jobs and wages along the way...which will kick off a death spiral that will crush most americans who are losing jobs and have little savings to speak of.
