Wow, this chart by Sean W. Malone put into perspective the destruction of the dollar and its impact on our lives!
I am particually struck by the last comment:
” Money Supply from 1946-2009 has been increased 5,938% to $8,235,900,00,000. In that time the US has seen 10 recessions, constant military action, massive expansion of government power, an explosion of the wellfare state and the complete annihilation of the buying power fo the US Dollar.
Now try to imagine what your life would be like if every dollar you had bought 20 times as much stuff…This is the cost of inflation.”
