No, there is no "dis" prefix missing. Sorry. Today's "heat" map, which in places like a burning Cairo has a very peculiar double entendre, comes courtesy of the WSJ.

JAPANESE VOLCANO SHIMNANDOKE BLOWS LID BITCHES
Shows that the impetus continues growing to either shift the world's reserve currency away from the USD or as Citigroup predict - the mother of all coordinated USD buying sprees to push prices back down. Not sure though how that will translate for the average punter paying in Bujabujastan paying in brass razoos, because his razoos will surely fall in value against the USD with coordinated intervention leaving him with similarly poor purchasing power?
nono, just the heating that's up a bit more then usual. It's winter remember?
I wonder how much gasoline it burns a day?
In India, inflation looks like a burnt onion.
Tears, fears, etc!
Can someone send that to ZimBenron?
That's funny - Cause Ben was the one who knowingly sent them the inflation to begin with!!!
Perhaps send it to Ben with the caption:
btw - imagine Ben in flight suit on carrier deck for full effect.

If you need junk silver in $100 face increments they have the lowest price I've seen anywhere ($0.00 over spot). Tulving is below spot but only if you buy a full $1K bag.
1000 bucks in quarters...
But descent silver, they still have plenty:
I just bought a roll of 2011 silver Eagles on eBay with free shipping for $670. Why would you pay more for generic rounds?
Why should I pay that for silver eagles when I can buy a roll of Englhardt rounds from my local coin shop for $579?
Load up wherever you can get silver. Won't be long that the quibbling over $5 will look silly, eh?
Indeed.. I remember not buying rolls of pre 64 half dollars if they were more than $7 each.. pfff...
Gainsvillecoins is a very large bullion dealer, it was not the point of my post to have people buy from them but to read their message on their front page to their customers.
I just read the real inflation rate in the US for the bottom 80% of the population is approaching 19% in the US! 19%!!! Couple that with the real unemployment rate of 19% and we see Egypt is coming to the US in full power... zeitgiest3
Yeah, I'd like to see that as well. Google comes up with nothing.
Shadowstats gives something to the magnitude of 8-9% p.a. (http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/inflation-charts), lower percentile would allocate higher percentage of their income to the food and other essential items, which at the moment appreciate stronger than discretionary items (iPhones, iPods etc.). the exact numbers may vary depending on how the basket is allocated between different items, but the trend would be still still the same: lower bracket is getting screwed over time much faster than the upper one as food and gas are getting more expensive and their spending allocation is heavily skewed towards exactly those items.
Oh I don't disagree with the gist of it, would just like to see the article.
Most likely doesn't exist as he got confused between 9% and 19%, fourth or fifth link on the "Real inflation rate for the US" gives the 8%, which is again a reference to Shadowstats: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=real+inflation+rate+in+the+US
In times of madness, skepticism would still serve one well.
The prices on stuff that's nice to have (mostly made in China) stays pretty cheap, stuff I really need goes up every day.
Add in some increased mechanization, and we have what is turning out to be a highly prophetic movie.
In Europe the unofficial number is 12.7% on jan. 1 and it's still rising fast.
I'm 100% shocked!
Switzerland sticks out like a post-crisis sore thumb.
For me, Venezuela stuck out more than any.
By not being on the chart?
If your comment was /sarc, well OK. I believe Venezuela is running over 30% inflation...
Oil over $92, maybe equities will start to "care"?
It really is an awesome predictor of all the next blowups - the deepest red above reads like who's who of upcoming turmoil...luckly none matter and all are out of the way countries.
Russia, India, Turkey, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Iran, S. Africa, Argentina.
I live in Texas and all of Mexico is already here. I guess Texas will have high inflation next.
Poor Japan. They're obviously losing the race to the bottom, by a long shot.
Wonderful. Now Ben Bernanke has become a national security threat. Hello Ron Paul...can we at least get a banking cocktail/meet and greet on the schedule?
Food Inflation!!!!! That is the key to the downfall of the ponzi!!!!!
BRIC's are RED - and pretty much anyone who exports oil .
Venezuela........next stop for a revolution? 31 people suffer violent deaths over the weekend for a total of 450 for the month of January just in Caracas....and that's without any riots or protest!
I suspect the sad irony with these 31 people may be that they were all from formerly wealthy Venezuelan families. The successful military coup by Hugo Chavez changed these affluent, influential citizens into 'enemies of the state', literally overnight. Such is the nature of a dictatorship.
I am curious whether they were bankers, or just standard-off-the-shelf rent-seeking moguls. Either way, isn't that the fate most of ZH wishes on the banksters?
Where's 2010 in this chart? It doesn't look up to date.
2% of all murders in Mexico are prosecuted. In some Mexican police station a desk awaits a mind as discerning as yours.
Bill, this isn't a gold thread. What are you doing here?
Anymore Cut N Paste material for us?
shhh don't tell Ben
That chart can't be correct. Bernanke says there is no inflation in the US and the Bureau of Lies and Statistics agrees.
Call Homeland Security. The WSJ must be a subversive newspaper.
Rising prices aren't inflation; in fact, to my knowledge, there is no official economic term to describe this phenomena. (bump, set ...)
RISING PRICES = MORE PROFIT = CAPITALISME BABY!!!!
It's a fractal in time.
As above, so below.
Hmmm, Venezuela; Barry's buddy Hugo. Are we exporting FEMA camps yet?
"like a burning Cairo"...... I know this tune.....
though this one might be a bit too soon.....
Don't Be Fooled, Inflation Is Already Here http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=194775.0
reason why it is easier to stoke inflation in emerging economies is because of substantial portion of spending is already for food/energy/shelter ... there is no discretionary spending to cut from to pay for rising core price. For economies like US, Japan, EU, the consumers can cut from discretionary spending to pay for core spending. So, for mature economies we can continue to expect dis-inflation amid demand destruction where as in emerging economies we should expect to see further fire-work. Question is ... is India or China a mature ecnomy or emerging economy? When can we expect to see Tiananmen redux?
Having inflation arise from external sources would, however, be the wrong kind of inflation. More expensive imports mean a reduction in disposable income for households and in profits for companies - hardly helping overlevered public and private sectors. However, with imported inflation pushing inflation expectations higher and central banks unwilling or unable to respond to the rise in non-core inflation, the chances are that domestic wages and inflation will also pick up eventually
And who said this? Certainly not you.

less for you, more for me.
The point was to demonstrate William's plagiarism.
We've been pretty lucky, but TPTB cheat on our calculations. I think it's really about 5% -- shadowstats.
Venezuela is really cooking along at about 30% inflation, hope they get their country back.
Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have high inflation and will be ripe for problems.
Looks likely the bottom is in...
but maybe not........game changer??
The circle of dispare and suffering. The FED creates too much money (QEs and deficits) which leads to higher food/oil costs which leads to social unrest in the poorest countries where food/oil costs are a high % of annual income. To solve the problem, the US gives gives more aid which leads to more money creation which leads to even higher food/oil costs which leads to more suffering. This will end when $ is no longer the world's reserve currency which will happen when militiants control the sezu canal. The problem in Egypt is not about social networking its about the most important piece of real estate in the world...its the sezu canal!!
inflation is turning out to be strange, w/ derivitive/bond market money supply rapidly expanding; yet inversly, the real economy money supply is shrinking, as our source, banks borrowing /creating our money as debt has been happening less and less for a # of reasons.

inflation is a bitch†
That's soooo last century. You don't blow them up any more. See www.realdoll.com ...
the red cards are STACKED a mountain high, they have been for 25 years, 80 even, but the bankers (credit) card game is up, Red-debt is a busted flush...
....go Blue go...
Timmy to Ben by the watercooler, "Here Ben blow.. uh.. I mean, suck... uh... no, blow on this for me.... now, get ready... SUCK, SUCK, SUCK.... ok... blow ben blow... NO SUCK SUCK SUCK... ok, wait for it... it's coming.... BLOW BLOW BLOW!!!"
The real inflation for the U.S. is still ahead. We're seeing hidden inflation now, but the worst is still ahead. It takes time for commodity prices to flow through to the grocery stores because many large U.S. manufacturers are hedged down the road, often for several months. But most are hedged no more than 6-9 months, so I expect that by summer, they will be forced to begin raising food prices by significant jumps.
