Thread: Rising prices followed by price controls.

  1. #1

    Rising prices followed by price controls.

    I think we'll see rising prices for staple goods followed by price controls in the next few months. The excuse for price controls will be "anti-gouging". There'll be lots of articles written about "heartless" business owners taking advantage of the crisis.

    Then I think after awhile it'll dawn on people that this isn't just a temporary crisis caused by the corona virus and greedy businessmen, but it's a problem caused by massive money printing. That's when it'll hit the fan, when people realize that we need to either drastically cut back on government spending or get hit by hyperinflation.

    Exclamation Helicopter Money Socialist inflation tax hikes

    The currency is continuously debased by the FED & commie enablers. Inflation is a targeted at 2% but is really much much higher in the real world.



    More inflation taxes.

    Price fixing...

    The Fed purchasing commercial paper and debt instruments to provide “liquidity” are really engaging in price fixing.

    There is a lack of buyers at full face value, thus the Fed purchases at full face value, preventing prices from falling. It is a method of price fixing, in addition to be a moral hazard.

    I knew this was going to happen because it's the path of least resistance. Borrowing and printing is easier than cutting spending. At least until prices start rising, then the game is over.
