You used to be able to buy a car for 500 USD. Today that would get you a mediocre bike. Now that's what I call a sound currency.

You used to be able to buy a car for 500 USD. Today that would get you a mediocre bike. Now that's what I call a sound currency.

Just three years ago, I paid $510 for a brand new alluminum alloy Trek 700.  Now they run about, what, $800 for the same bike?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

So less than yesterdays pizza financed an aircraft today. This is what i call a sound currency.

Son, I bought a cup of coffee back in 1947 for 5 cents.

Money meant something back in the day. Now you get to pay 4 damn bucks. Where's my back medication.
