I never thought of tens of thousands of dead Libyans as "self correcting" demand destruction, but I guess when you're that far gone it makes some sort of sense.

demand destruction... the new and improved collateral damage.

At least collatoral damage always got the condescending adjective "regrettable" tied to it; now a bunch of dead Arabs is a cheap price to pay for fewer mouths to feed according to central banking cheerleaders.

Good point. I like intentional collateral damage much better though.

In the long run, that will be the only thing that saves us.  I still declare that we are going through price REAL inflation.  REAL inflation is sustainable....this is not as we are not seeing rising wages.


People need to re-define what inflation it.  It is not rising money IS RISING WAGES.  Without the sustainability of rsising prices, they are nothing more than mere price corrections.  BUT, can we afford to live through the current price corrections???  Still to be seen!!!!!!!

That deranged punk shouldn't have much trouble...

Yet, I look around my office and talk to people, nobody knows about PM's, nominal vs real, fractional and full reserve banking, inflation...

Therefore, I'm not surprised our enemy is this massive. Yet, in spite of the bankstas the Austrian School of Economics has proven to be fact.

May the Keynesian experiment be cast into hell for it has destroyed lives, wealth and the futures of our children.

Not even a peep from the head spin doctor to re-purpose the no/low inflation lie.

Shameful and undermines credibility.

The end of the age of OIL. THe century and a bit of OIL is OVER. And thank goodness for that. Of course, there is enough left to drive th ewar that is looming.

It was an explosive paradigm, fromt he get-go. How could it ever end differently or better?

Oil-jinkies, meet painful withdrawl.

The armchair publicist in me is saying:

Just wait until Obama makes the claim that QEs 1-3 inclusive, which sparked worldwide commodity inflation, ultimately achieved what the neo-cons only dreamed of with their military swagger: the demise of half a dozen thug dictators in the Middle East.

Food and gas are a small part of total monthly expenditures in the USA.

At least here freaking out over just two small parts of monthly expenditures is a tempest in a teapot.

Right, food and gas are minor expenditures, taking a back seat to IPhone and IPad payments, hi speed internet access, 500 channels of bullshit and streaming Netflix, new LuLuLemon yoga outfits...the REAL necessities for the modern american neadersheep!

Transportation is like 20%, food is like 15%.   I would consider that significant.
