our perception of the real price increases due to monetary inflation is what must be different.
I make a good bit of money for this area... at least enough that someone could live comfortable. I am a specialist in a few esoteric fields.
well, that used to be true... about 6 years ago things started to get tighter, but nothing to be alarmed about. 3 years ago, all frills were cut back to almost nil just to make the bills.. same assets, same amount of bills. the only thing that has changed is the cost of everything I buy.
and now, I have to go to my boss and ask for more money, just so I am not taking a huge pay decrease.
this is why money creation is theft, and its immoral.
