    "we have inflation in check"
    President Donald Trump

    do you know a better signal that inflation is about to ratchet up?

  2. How about 10 years of that special quantitative easing that they swear isn't creating money out of thin air

  4. The REAL "bottom line" on inflation....it's WAAAYYYYY higher than is actually reported. Why? Because those who benefit from it don't want us to fully understand its ramifications and act accordingly.

    IOW... the "official inflation rates" are just another lie and scam... like just about everything the government reports.

    ain't that the truth. lying gov't statistics are not only in 2nd and 3rd world countries but in 1st world countries, maybe especially around election time.

    the only inflation data I use is my basket of goods and how many more $50bills my friend receives, in his business, for small item purchases

  6. "Spike" up? No.

    Rise up - has been and likely to continue for some time.
