Interactive Global Inflation Heat Map

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
