A few calls I'd like to make....

Government(s) will demand broad sweeping powers and enable their corporatist partners.

The evil central bankers/IMF will push for a one (single) world currency, which they'll issue/control.

And encourage a cashless society.

We might see some short term deflation, but due to a massively expanding money supply (government endorsed counterfeiting) we'll end with some nasty inflation.

Government will tax and censor the internet.

You'll have to get a government license too access the web too.

Expect more war(s), especially for resources, wealth in the ground, of course they'll be in the name of protection/terrorism.

Basic goods and services will get much more expensive. (water will be a biggie, food and energy are going to be up there too)

People will revolt, protest and push back, and they'll be labeled. (Travel & movements will be monitored and restricted - Police State)

Your government will direct your law enforcement and military to squash any uprising.

I'll be labeled a cynic by those who haven't studied history.

If you're reading this, the Buffalo Bills will never win a Super Bowl in your lifetime.

And finally, when people are sick up and fed with entropy and desolation, the human race will rise from the ashes and hopefully understand that peace and prosperity through non-aggression is the only way to truly live.

Regards

(this is a fairly quick and spontaneous list and I'm sure I've left out a few items, so feel free to add and discuss)

 

US Government Begins Rollout Of Its 'Driver's License For The Internet'

from the seizing-the-(wrong)-moment dept

An idea the government has been kicking around since 2011 is finally making its debut. Calling this move ill-timed would be the most gracious way of putting it.

A few years back, the White House had a brilliant idea: Why not create a single, secure online ID that Americans could use to verify their identity across multiple websites, starting with local government services. The New York Times described it at the time as a "driver's license for the internet."

Sound convenient? It is. Sound scary? It is.

Next month, a pilot program of the "National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace" will begin in government agencies in two US states, to test out whether the pros of a federally verified cyber ID outweigh the cons.

So, then, what's the difference between inflation, and "nasty inflation", and hyperinflation?  Strikes me as a lot of hair/splitting/back pedaling.

People on fixed incomes (like people with money in a mattress) do run the risk of having their buying power diminish due to inflation. Isn't zero inflation basically an unrealistic economic goal, however?

Most people understand that periodic increases in earnings are necessary to maintain a certain standard of living. That's why there's a push on for raising minimum wage, for example.

I agree, you should tweak your list.

well there's difference between inflation and hyperinflation and because schiff was spot on about the housing bubble doesn't mean he's gonna nail this one too

when trying to get to what real inflation looks like i prefer (or i'd like) some sort of standard, but that gets changed from time to time

or you might ask all the retirees you know (people on a fixed income how they're doing or about how far their money is going since they've retired)

it's one of the questions i ask

if inflation historically averages 3-4% and your parents have CDs and savings that aren't making that then their purchasing power is going backwards

there's a trend of this happening and it looks like this



simplified example:

generally if growth is three per cent and you increase the money supply by three percent the dollar could at least hold it's value/purchasing power

when you increase the supply too much, you'll see a downward trend

the boomers are retiring out at a increasing rate and we'll see inflation's effects more and more on these folks

krugman's conflicted thinking has been brought to light by some (repeatedly)

some of those folks calling for the dollar to crash are taking into consideration that it may lose reserve currency status (like converting oil bourse trading in other currencies)

here's a handy little inflation calc that you can play with
