    A Warning: Inflation

    A Warning: Inflation

    Inflation is essentially government theft. Let’s talk about it. Inflation occurs when government expands the money supply. The greater the supply, the less scarce – and therefore valuable – something becomes. In our economy, the federal government can expand the money supply through policy. We currently have an inflation rate around 5.9%. In this episode, Stephen discusses what this can mean for everyday wage-earners and investors. Be wise, and keep your eye on the inflation rate.

An oasis in the desert

I’ve withdrawn from so many outlets I used to get info from. Reason, logic, and thoughtfulness have given way to clickbait and histrionics. Stephen stands in the well-considered center. Frankly, this podcast is as rare and valuable as a gold plated unicorn laying dodo eggs. If you’re tired of extremes, give it a listen!

It’s ok

Classically liberal, self identified As a moderate…misses the mark quite often with either poor analysis or weak conclusions. Not very well researched.

Really?

The problem here is that the party and many of the people you’re defending have stood behind a maniac.Even those who stood up, stood up too late, and only after in powering a person who is extremely dangerous.It completely undermines your claim to centrality.
