Here are a few pictures of hyper inflation in Germany from the 1920's. We are not talking gold and silver here, just paper money.
We are not quite here yet. Toilet paper rolls are one inch shorter as are boxes of Kleenex. $3.99 for 10 ozs of potato chips rubs me the wrong way!
Let the Treasury print two trillion for next year and we will be here.
From there it is all downhill. Kiss your retirement savings good-by. Of course this can't possibly happen to us. This only happens in third world countries!
The picture below shows you what real money looks like. The government can coin it, but it can't create silver coins with a printing press.
The Silver dollar currently is worth about 40 dollars. The 50 cent piece is a twenty dollar bill. The silver quarter will buy lunch for two, and the minuscule dime will buy a gallon of gas. But hasn't gas gone up in price???
Ask yourself one question, if silver coins have held their value so well over time, why aren't we still using them? To quote Shakespeare's Hamlet; "Therin lies the rub."
