Let me summarize this thread, I do not believe America is " back" , I do not believe it can even come " back " under the current conditions, and that any, " unlikely " boom will be followed by an even " bigger " bust.Hopefully, I am wrong, doubtful ....
What I expect to see that I believe you Can count on, is more taxes & fees , lower incomes, more unemployment and higher food prices.

Milk Prices (whole milk) Price chart:
Compared to five years ago, they haven't changed much. Up 40% since 1995. In hyperinflation that would happen in less than one month.
Gasoline prices? Five years ago it was about $2.90 a gallon vs about $3.50 on this chart. Roughly 20% change in five years.
Cheer up! Things could be worse!
So I cheered up- and sure enough, things got worse!

There is a gas station I pass when I drive by every weekday morning. Over the weekend, price of gas went up from $3.60 to $3.69. When I drove by this morning, I was shocked to see it was at $3.74. That's a $0.14 increase in less than a week. I've driven by that gas station for at least 5 years, and I can't remember the price changing that much over the course of a few days.

I'm stunned. Went by the same gas station today and it's now up to $3.84. That's a $0.24 increase in one week.

The food prices will be worse , I imagine , I would expect summer gas to be $4.25 by Memorial Day weekend, just my guess ....
I look for these things to become worse ....
I will go ahead & stick with my hunch , next boom will be prices going up , not wages.
