Producer Price Index Soars to Annual Rate of 8.4%; Government Says No Inflation

Tämä artikkeli kertoo siitä, kuinka valtiot, väärentämällä tilastoja ryöstää kansaa. Delvalvaatio on yksi tapa, inflaatio numeroiden väärntäminen on toinen tapa. Jos ei ole inflaatiota, niin eläkkeitä ei tarvitse nostaa… näin helppoa se on valtiolle varastaa eläkeläisten rahat.

Tähän päälle viellä kaikki uuden verot ja maksut, joita valtiot kehittelevät heti kun kassa on tyhjä. Ja jos nämä keinot eivät riitä, niin sitten tehdän kyprokset.. eli ryöstettään säästöt.

Voit olla aivan 100 varama, että monet muutkin maat tulevat tekemään kyprokset, kunhan tämä lama tästä hieman syvenee. Jos sínulla on sästössä suuria summia; kannattaa ehkä miettiä, että miten ne voi suojata. Samoin tulee käymään eläkesäästöjen, kun valtiot (eli politiikot) tuhlaavat kaikki muiden (veronmaksajien) rahat, niin sitten ryöstetään eläkekassat.

Olemmeko me ihmiset todellakin näin vitun typeriä, että me seuraamme tätä meidän ryöstöä sivusta laupeina kun lammaslauma? Vastaus: Me todellakin olemme näin vitun typeriä!!!!!!

While the “official” numbers may not show it, inflation in the U.S. economy is a major problem, and it’s hurting any chance we may have of real economic growth.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says inflation in the U.S. economy has caused prices to increase by only 12% since 2007—what $1.00 could buy in 2007 costs $1.12 today. (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics web site, last accessed April 5, 2013.) As my readers know, I believe these inflation numbers are materially understated.

In February, the U.S. Producer Price Index (PPI), what many economists consider to be an early signal of where inflation might be headed, posted the highest month-over-month rate of change since October 2012. The PPI rose 0.7% in February from January. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, last accessed April 5, 2013.) Using February’s number as a base, the PPI is rising at an annual rate of 8.4%.

Corn futures at the beginning of 2007 were priced around $350.00 per lot. Now the same future costs $630.00 each—an increase of 80% in the last five years. As corn is an ingredient in a significant number of different foods, general food prices have also increased.

But despite the inflation we are experiencing, Americans’ wages aren’t rising. In the first quarter of 2007, the average hourly earnings of all private-sector employees in the U.S. economy was $20.70 per hour. In the first quarter of 2013, it increased to $23.80 an hour—a six-year increase of less than 15% (source: Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis web site, last accessed April 5, 2013); not enough to keep up with inflation.

Adding more to the problem, the Federal Reserve is still issuing new money at the rate of $85.0 billion a month, while the U.S. government spends about $1.0 trillion a year more than what it takes in. The more paper money printed, the more the government goes into debt, the more long-term damage there is to the U.S. dollar and the buying power of the greenback.

Dear reader, with inflation increasing and real wages falling, you can see why it’s very difficult for the U.S. economy to get any traction. By looking at the optimism of stock advisors and rising key stock indices, one would think all is well with consumer confidence and consumer spending—but the reality is the exact opposite. Economic growth occurs when the standard of living improves; unfortunately, right now that standard is deteriorating in America.
