You Call It Inflation; I Call It Theft

Inflation is deceitful and ineffective. It swindles savers, fleeces lenders, pumps taxes higher and triggers malinvestment. It doesn’t reduce unemployment; it whittles away your wage. Nor does inflation promote exports, but it does make international trade more frightening.

If inflation succeeded, it would be merely dishonest. But as history proves, it never works. Neither Bush, nor Obama’s weak dollar policies did anything to alleviate the overblown “trade deficit” and much to undermine growth. There is no evidence that inflation fosters exports or employment.

As Washington plunders the value of our property and expropriates the product of our labor, inflation reduces us to servitude. Debasement is a despicable ploy the government uses to rob you blind. Period.
