Costco Is Now In The Apocalypse Provisioning Business

Tyler Durden's picture

One of the more amusing implications of Bernanke's relentless desire to destroy the world is that he is causing a surge in profit margins for retailers like costco which are now actively engaged in provisioning for the upcoming monetary policy-induced apocalypse. And here is the deal of the day, courtesy of producer shelf reliance ("your premier source for food storage and emergency preparedness planning") as Bernanke is apparently dead set on immitating the BOJ in purchasing ETFs openly, as opposed to using its secret Citadel dark pool channels: $799 buys you a 1-year food supply for 1 person or 5,011 total servings. Thank you Bernanke - your actions have now lead people to believe you are the antichrist. We can't decide if Geithner is famine or pestilence.
