  • I'm in the wrong business.  I think the driver shortage is propaganda.  What, did they all die of CÖVÌD?  Unemployment at +$300 per week isn't enough to disincentivize these guys from working, like it definitely has been for the minimum wage folks.
    Based on the truckers and fleet manager  I have talked to, the trucker shortage is real, because the younger drivers to not want to do the long haul jobs. So many trucking companies have to raise the salary to attract drivers, yet the quality of drivers has decreased. Many of the old timers (owner/operators) say their sons do not want to take over the business, and the old-timers are getting old and tired so they do not want to do long haul anymore, or they are doing less.

    So I have $1000 in cash and I'm thinking it might be a good idea to convert it into something tangible.

    I have about 4 months worth of food and supplies.
    My advice is to load up on canned food.  Maybe buy some physical silver coins, if you can find them.  Have cash on hand.

  • The laws of economics always work; just like the laws of physics or chemistry. They're inherent in the nature of things.

    Sure, that's why the stockmarket has been going steadily up despite the fact that we've been in a serious recession if not borderline depression for the past two years.  Even the other day when their new jobs numbers reported the worst miss of expectations in 23 years, the market went up.

    It's all fake.  They just claim that they have a certain money supply.  FIAT money doesn't exist and so normal economic rules don't apply.

    But what about COVID magically caused this?  We didn't have a trucker shortage before COVID.  They all died?

    A huge problem with finding truck drivers and equipment operators is being able to find someone who can pass a drug test.

    It has actually been an issue for several years, it just doesn't make the news very often.

    Cash might go worthless.  Probably the best barter items that work as currency in an economic times are ... cigarettes, coffee, and alcohol.

    And it didn't seem to affect the supply chain before now either.  This whole downturn is engineered.

    That one guy reporting from India said that the government is actively destroying the food supply.  If you recall in the early days of COVID, they were destroying crops and lifestock.

    I don't disagree with you that this present situation is engineered. But this particular aspect of it has been a long term problem. I talk regularly with people that own/manage construction and trucking companies and what I have written above is what they tell me.
    A big part of the reason that it has not been so noticeable is that the older drivers have stayed working, often into their late 70's.

    The crux of the problem is that the "Boomers" and the following generations, didn't/don't have many children. Between contraception and abortion we are missing many millions of people that would have done these jobs.

    This is a situation, decades in the making, which we are starting to reap the fruits of.

    Ladislaus, the stock market is going up because of inflation too. Stock prices are getting inflated like everything else, except that they started going up sooner than other things because I suppose they are further upstream (towards the printing presses) than consumer goods. If you look at stock valuations, the P/E ratios are incredibly high. That means the price for the stock is extremely high. High prices indicate inflation, no?

    What exactly is fake? You think the government didn't actually print all that money last year?

    The rules of economics with regard to inflation apply to whatever is being used as a medium of exchange, whether it's fiat currency, gold doubloons, German marks, wampum, Kennedy half-dollars, salt, or Rai. If the supply of whatever is being used as a medium of exchange goes up and the quantity of purchasable goods and services remains the same, the prices will go up. It's basic math.

    No, it's not.  It's being artificially manipulated.  It doesn't react badly to bad news anymore.  There area hundred ways that the big trading companies do that, including help from the Plunge Protection Team.

    Only if the market is free to begin with.  It's totally controlled.  We've been hearing about the unsustainable debt bubble for 20 years.  It'll only pop when they want it to.  Until then, they can just keep adding zeros to it in the computer.  No, no dollars were actually printed.  They're going to do away with paper currency pretty soon, probably in favor of a social credit type of system.

    Look at the exchange rates for the U.S. dollar ... has barely budged.

    There's some limited inflation, but that's being done on purpose:
    1) lower-end wages have gone up because employers are having trouble keeping workers due to the CÖVÌD unemployment
    2) deliberate artificial restriction of supply

    Everything that happens economically is totally controlled by the Jєωs; there are no free markets.

    ruled by tyrants. They have plenty of brainwashed people to go along with it.
