Inflation and Rising Prices

arrow up arrow down

In response to a query a few days ago, this writer has been writing about INFLATION for a LONG time–twelve or thirteen years, to be exact.

NOW, writing about a topic for YEARS is NO sign that what one has written is true.

BUT, in this case, it is.

When then-president Barack Obama began printing dollar bills 24/7 non-stop in 2009, we wrote that the INEVITABLE result would be INFLATION and rising prices.

Less than six months ago, we had this to say

Oh, there is plenty of media attention paid AT THE MOMENT to the rising of prices–which has been ongoing for YEARS.

There is lots of media attention focused on the PAIN and DISCOMFORT such constantly-rising prices bring to those who must pay them.

And, even though prices have been rising steadily over the past 10-12 years, the media pretends that this INFLATIONARY turn of events is VERY RECENT and has JUST begun (clumsily) laying the blame on President Biden.  Though Biden has done NOTHING to stop the 24/7 printing of little slips of paper we call money, the problem began YEARS earlier than Biden’s term.).

What is that one true observation about inflation?

SOME COMPANIES WILL UP THEIR PRICES, regardless of whether their costs are rising or not, AND WILL BLAME THE INCREASE ON “INFLATION.”

In other words, there are a VERY FEW benefits to inflation–mostly to those who prey on the weak-mindeded.

This is due to GREED and OPPORTUNISM.
One True Observation About Times of Inflation

All of this talk about inflation lately has reminded us of something said about twelve years ago.

This writer was a rock-solid heathen who kept his eyes firmly on the things of the world.  One of the things of the world which was paid attention to was INFLATION–because INFLATION is a known component of financial systems.  A well-known financial writer with whom this writer was somewhat acquainted wrote an email IMPLORING this writer to reconsider his stands on INFLATION.

“It’s not inflation we have to worry about: it’s DEFLATION!

The very straight-forward reply?

“When prices start going down, THEN I’ll start writing about deflation.  Until then, prices are rising: that’s a clear sign of inflation.”

It was the LAST email I ever received from that writer.

Which all leads to these TWO latest observations about the phenomenon we call INFLATION. (One observation is very old; another is very new.)

1- Inflation is caused when those who have control of the money, print paper and call it ‘money’ without any corresponding increase in wealth which backs up that paper money. Governments have used various shenanigans about printing paper and calling it money for CENTURIES.

2- “Inflation and rising prices have been a part of everyday American life for YEARS.  Does the reader have any thoughts on WHY the government/media JUST started to recognize this problem over the past year or so–even though the media attributes inflation to many, many NON-reasons?”

HAS the reader noticed any prices rising recently?

DOES the reader have any thoughts as to WHY this might be happening?

WHERE did the reader get his thoughts about inflation?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
