Zero Hedge: Inflationary Hysteria


And continue into the comments if your vocabulary can handle hard-R language and your sense of humor tends towards the dark.

I'm thinking how best to use the concept of "radioactive bears", as noted here.

A band?

A boutique craft brew?

Other suggestions?

Page style sucks ass, making it near impossible to read thru overtype, or am I missing some way to decipher this mess?

It's really here, isn't it...

I mean, really.

How did that go again?

Here we are. Imagine where we will be.

These are the good old days.

Two big IFs to consider and these do NOT need to happen together at the same time:

Foreign powers move out of the Dollar.

The imported oil spigot is reduced or turned off.

Bears? How about a crack cavalry unit?

"In the world I see – you're stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You will wear leather clothes that last you the rest of your life. You will climb the wrist thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. You will see tiny figures pounding corn and laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of an abandoned superhighway."

That's a great movie plot. I suppose that in 2012, the 200 year supply of coal buried in North America will be raptured away, along with the 300 million automobiles, leaving the survivors in a metal-poor environment? No, wait -- the Sears Tower still stands, but nobody thinks to scavenge structural steel from it to make a wood-fired steam-powered corn grinding mill? The river valleys that powered the American and British industrial revolutions still have the dams in place today. Maybe those get raptured away, too. And the Canadian hydro dams that power the Northern US. And the Hoover Dam. And, and...

Lifestyle and industrialization levels didn't fall this low during the inflation/government financial collapse of USSR, Argentina, or Zimbabwe. It didn't fall this low in the Weimar Republic, or Nazi Germany which followed it. Yes, Germany genocided a bunch of the middle class, but that could only happen because the victims drank the self-loathing kool-aid and passively submitted themselves to destruction. Maybe some whitebread Americans will submit themselves to marching the healthcare trail of tears.

From what I read, Zimbabwe suffered for years because so many victims persisted in pretending that government worked. If they had switched to a commodity money after the first month when fiat currency lost 80% of purchasing power, the pain would have been over much sooner.
