  • A rampant economy?

    More like they have printed far too many dollars in order to inflate the lungs of a dead economy, and people have now sussed that the inflation stats. are fiddled so as to hide this. Oh what a tangled web we weave….

    The U.K. BoE has devalued the pound to a greater %age than the US Treasury. I think GBP M4 was 13.5%!

    Stagflation is the only possible outcome.
