Re: Videos, Books, and Propaganda
You cannot even stay on topic on your own topics. How about you take a break and come back when you can concentrate on one or two of the OPs you started.
BTW, the government does not provide a product.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

WTF?
Anyone who doubts the bedrock value of hard assets (Land, Gold, Copper, Nickel, Oil, Natural Gas, etc) need only ask Europe what they think as they shiver this Winter.

This explanation, as nutball as it is, has no relation to the statement I questioned.

Re: Videos, Books, and Propaganda
None at all.
Gold and Silver have crashed before.
Gold & Silver Crashes in History: Severity, Duration, and Recoveries | SilverSeek
The idea that they are a hedge against inflation is disproven by the fact their value in dollars has dropped when there was some inflationary pressure this last year.
The US dollar is up big against other currencies.
What do you mean the dollar is inflating? What does that mean?
Gold is going down. It went down over the last year. YTD the value of gold has dropped 2% in 2021 it dropped 3.5%. That is over 5% in 2 years.

There are five times as many dollars in circulation as there used to be.

Re: Videos, Books, and Propaganda
In other words you don't have a clue. Start with the 5 times claim. Here is a hint. If you can't back what you say with facts and data don't say it. "I heard" or "people say" is for liars and charlatans.

You truly have no idea how the bond market works, but you feel capable of making economic and financial prognostications?
Debate with you is pointless. I will go back to just pointing out the blatant stupidities you spout. At least that way it is fun.

Re: Videos, Books, and Propaganda
Way more than it should be up, given how many dollars (excess dollars) are in circulation.
But you have not shown this to be true. Show us this 5-times increase in dollars in circulation. Also, you do realize that economics is more complex than more dollars= inflation, don't you?
