People are paying quite a bit more for their food and other necessities this year. The prices are continuing to soar as year over year prices jump by 5.4%. We are all paying more than that though.
The mainstream media and our rulers continue to blame inflation on the COVID-19 scamdemic. However, the real problem with inflation is that too much fiat currency is chasing too few goods. The supply shortage isn’t helping. There’s a finite law in economics called “supply and demand” and it seems like everyone, especially those still cemented in the left vs. right paradigm lie, continue to fail to understand it.
While economists have insisted for months that inflation is temporary, prices have continued ticking up. Everyday Americans are left feeling the sting in their bank account today: Wages grew just 4.6% in September compared to a year prior, far below the 5.4% year-over-year price increase.
Even the most basic understanding of economics can tell us that there is nothing temporary about this type of inflation. Massive amounts of currency were injected into the monetary system at a time when things were getting harder to produce and get into stores. But the ruling class and their puppets in the media think we are stupid.
So what can be done about it? We should be stockpiling what we can. Nothing is happening by accident, so we need to prepare:
Take stock of your local store. Notice what is difficult to get in and make that a priority. If canning supplies are few and far between, make that a focus. If you notice that the meat shelves are sparse, grab some extra when you can afford to and freeze it or store it another way. If the canned goods shelves are looking bare, get a few extras every time you are there. Water, water storage, and vegetables to can and/or freeze are not bad to have either.
We really only have two options. Play the game and lose, or understand the game is rigged and prepare to not play. The rulers don’t like it when we don’t play.
