Wife tells me that new vehicles from overseas are scarce due to not having enough ships. Where'd they go?
Vehicles are hard to get because of a shortage of CHIPS. New vehicles are extremely computerized and without microprocessors to make them work, they have the vehicles stored on huge parking lots, waiting on CHIPS.

We are seeing a train wreck happening before our eyes.

Biden has the $ printing presses going nonstop and turning them up. He shouldn’t be in office and wouldn’t without the corrupted voting machines in a few states.

The economy was shut down and still is in many blue states, the service industry workers are making more at home than at work

.gov regulations are killing incentive. RIN credits, that refiners must buy and are used to offset the refiner’s carbon footprint, prices hit the highest price ever yesterday. Wait to see what happens with energy prices and the green new deal. You know the little plastic pellets talked about in the post above are made from ethylene from pulling natural gas out of the ground?
Here's a price chart I found on ethylene. from .18 to .60. That is a 233% increase in price.

Not to mention the market forces of supply and demand. The supply chain has been slammed as mentioned above. Covid, the weather, the .gov. When you have a constricted supply with a high demand, prices will increase.

Hyperinflation, here we come! The media and Biden are doing a good job hiding the inflation. Wait until reality sets in and people panic. A Liberal’s dream of riots and unrest will be everywhere.

We’ll be pushing around wheel barrels of cash to buy a loaf of bread. Heard a story about Germany. Due to hyperinflation, they were using wheel barrels to carry their Marks. Someone left a wheel barrel outside a bakery that was full of Marks. When they came out, the wheel barrel was gone, but they left all the Marks.

There is a global shortage of acetone. Acetone is used in the creation of many resins and plastics, so it affects a ton of crap in all kinds of fields.

There have been some disasters that have contributed to this, but the main culprit is China Flu. Many companies ceased to function for months because of it, and we are now seeing the results.

Here’s another fun thing about this stupidity. Big corporations will be first in line for product when they finally start producing again. So expect inflation out our keasters when it happens. Brazil’s hyper inflation is a pretty good model to compare it too.

There’s two new housing developments being built In Guymon and it got me thinking...

1. Those are gonna be some high priced houses anyways because Guymons real estate market is wack.

2. those houses are gonna have so many corners cut to save money on materials that they won’t even be worth buying.
I’ve got a contractor friend doing a house renovation for another friend, and the price on everything is “fluid”. So far, they’re $15k over the original bid.:anyone:

....it's just play money.
Yep. As long as people believe it’s real, they’ll keep using it.

I think a lot of people have more faith in Bitcoin than the dollar these days. Crypto cannot be manipulated like the dollar is.

The general public doesn’t understand that inflation is a tax on everything.

This shows the productivity vs competition since removed from the gold standard. The gold standard is similar to crypto as in it has an intrinsic and baseline value that cannot be manipulated by making more. Like printing more dollars.
