    No, they aren't.

    They are.

    Your dollars lack store of value.

    If you're holding onto a pile of FRNs to "store value", you may be a moron.

    figure out why those stocks are priced so high first. Way overpriced,

    You should short them. Post it here when you do.

    share your thoughts on, oh, lets say price fixing,

    Fixing of what? By whom?

    What Citizen is saying is that fiat currency is easily manipulated and inflated to the point of ripping people off.

    Did the value of gold really triple over a 10 year period? Or, did the value of an FRN tank?

    In 1900, a $20 gold coin could purchase a complete suit of high-quality clothing. Go look at the current value of 0.9675 oz gold coin, then check the price of an average Georgio Armani suit.

    Inflation is theft.

    Toddster knows what I was talking about. He's just trolling. Really, Toddster is likely the best troller I've seen on this board. And that's actually a complement. Ha.

    Make no mistake, though, he's a Keynesian through and through. Though, I don't know if he actually realizes it. Toddster is a trustee and participant in economic interventionism. And economic planning by a central bank. And deficit finincing. And inflationism. And the welfare state so long as it's his welfare. Toddster is clearly and observably a trustee in the government running the monetary policy and the economy rather than the free market.

    His model for a healthy American monetary policy is so far removed from free-market capitalism that it's laughable when he calls it such.

    I think he's grown comfortable popping off in the company of people who might not otherwise understand economic theory and monetary policy. But those days are gone. Heh heh.

    Well, if the value of the FRN tanked, all prices should have tripled. Did they?

    In 1900, a $20 gold coin could purchase a complete suit of high-quality clothing. Go look at the current value of 0.9675 oz gold coin, then check the price of an average Georgio Armani suit.


    In 1999, an ounce of gold could by you a $260 suit. In 2011, an $1800 suit, today a $1250 suit.
    Are those equivalent suits?

    Ok.

    Better than free, have government PAY people to go to the doctor! Then we'll be extra healthy!

    Also, hookers and blow.

    If they want to earn more, they should. Because if so much of our GDP wasn't going toward healthcare, it would naturally go somewhere else. Such as in "the 50% who pay taxes's" wallets.

    No. Doctors and nurses would get their health care for free. And maybe with that burden being taken off their backs, they would be willing to work for a little less pay. As for drug companies, fuck them! Raising the price of a drug that has been around for a long time by 100,000%?! They need to be fucking SHOT!
