    They hatch to many of their little ones for the little ones we sire. At least that's what my parents told me. :D
  7. Look up the definition of inflation and then you can work it out for yourself!
  8. One definition is an increase in the money supply, or more money chasing fewer (or the same amount of) goods.

    How does the Fed accomplish that?
