  • Monetary Inflation not leading to Price Inflation?

    Theoretically speaking, monetary inflation will eventually lead to price inflation. However, we have yet to see price inflation since QE 1 and 2. What factors are keeping price inflation from taking effect, despite a a rise in the money supply? Some ideas are: wages of most americans have stagnated since...

  • Re: Bernanke claims he is not printing money.

    Bernanke, however incompetent he seems to be regarding even some basic economic theory, is correct when he says: We’re not printing money. The amount of currency in circulation is not changing. The money supply is not changing in any significant way. – Ben Bernanke, 60 Minutes Interview,...

Assuming that certain people profit and others do not, it would mean that someone could end up having $5 for himself and four other people would have $0.
