Hyperinflation has been a doomsday scenario for modern economies throughout the last century. In all of these failed countries (Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Hungary, Yugoslavia, etc.) there have been uniform warning signs, the same signs that we are starting to see today in the U.S.

      Hey, I'd love to have something explained. Printing physical money obviously alters the supply of the notes, which lowers the value of each individual note. But nowadays paper cash is used less and less and what we use to count money are numbers in a screen which, unless they are tied to a physical good in the real world by the banks and regulatory agencies, in theory shouldn't follow a scarcity = valuable relationship. Say, a bank lends me some credit and just inputs some zeroes and ones in their computers; a balance that I can exchange for paper money and physical goods. What happens if a lot of people do so? Are they somehow "printing money"? At some point can they reject people from borrowing from them because they ran out of zeroes and ones? What gives? I think it would make for a good video to explain and clarify this virtualization of money (which is already an abstraction of economic value).

    I'm under the impression multiple countries are doing this, and at this point it's all on the world leaders to pretty much "waive away" any of the usual downsides to printing money. If anything, seems like we'll be fine as long as the big wig economists and the 'bad' hyper wealthy keep quiet. Of course, that's just the observations of one trying to figure out this stock market thing to say the least.... everyones been talking total world collapse for over half a year yet the chaos all the economists and scared investors were swearing is upon us.... still seems to be a non factor.

    The inflation reporters usually fail to mention that a normal economy that increases productivity would produce some deflation - e.g. computers and electronics became cheaper per value over time. When the FED says inflation is only 2%, they are not counting the additional cost of the productivity increases that should have caused dollars to buy more goods and services. The real rate of inflation should account for not only robbing the 2% from people's savings but also everyone's increased productivity. It is a tax on the savers, retirees and producers and an undeserved gift to borrowers. When money is created by the Fed and other bankers , they get to use the money before it causes inflation so it benefits them at the expense of retirees and workers. It makes the rich richer and the poor poorer. It pushes up asset prices that are primarily owned by the wealthy. Currency creation promotes inequality.

    I’m sure you are all checking his hypothesis to real economists right? Lol. Let’s start with high debt. So America’s debt to GDP ratio is 120%. For starters 150% WAS considered the breaking point but now we have countries like Japan at 220% and climbing. The idea that that debt is going to kill us all when interests rates are this low is insane. Japan has printed more money than America by trillions literally trillions more and they are almost at deflation. Not only that all the money that was “printed” has already been priced in. Hyper inflation occurs when people think the government has to default. We are no where near close to that. Hyper inflation also occurs when the central bank isn’t independent. America’s is. Also we are in danger of deflation. Check the graphs. Since 2008 we have had 2 periods of above 3% inflation and ONE TIME it got to 4% in 2012 ONE TIME. And that was AFTER the fed printed a shot tonne of money. Most modern economies are struggling to break the 3% barrier. Most Europe, Japan, South Korea. Anywhere that is highly developed has this issue. Videos like this are dear mongering and prey on the uninformed to make them nervous. It’s wrong.

    The "big companies" are MUCH weaker than we give them credit for because almost ALL US corporations today depend on Federal Handouts (doleouts) in order ro keep from falling to their much smaller competitors. Remember the bank bailouts? More proof that the economy is basically at the same point as Bernie at "Weekends at Bernies" and the REASON for that could very well be the unlimited printing of money. If the Government suddenly stopped printing so much money and stopped handing out bailouts, guess what happens to the US economy? It will simply reveal that the economy is dead and our GDP will likely shrink to Greece or Italy size or vanish entirely. The chaos in CA and Portland? That has underlying economic roots. The crisis is HERE NOW look at the mass homelessness, that isn't narcotics at work, that is millions of medium sized businesses "embracing the reaper" and the BIG HIT will come when we go into unpreventable hyper-inflation which will be within a year or less. Then we will be seeing 100% unemployment, suicide rates of 80% or 90% homicide rates of 200% or higher. Mass rioting on a horrific scale and inevitable Martial Law unless the Federal Government basically ceases to operate, which is a VERY LIKELY possibility. A government that cannot pay it's Police and military is a joke that only exists on paper. So if we end up in a state of real anarchy, which is quite likely, then either the UN or Canada is going to have to step in just to provide police and government. I doubt Canada would help us in a crisis. They are Socialists up there, Socialists are blood-thristy by nature. So basically when rioters eat all of the food, people will start eating cats and dogs to survive and then they turn on each other. The race to "zero population" in the West will be gangs of starved people eating human flesh. Enjoy the collapse! Build and stock your bunkers NOW unless you want to become a human flesh eater, or a "zombie" in more honest terms.

    this is overly simplistic and makes several mistakes. The US is a large open economy that is large enough to affect world interest rates, none of the examples of countries with hyperinflation is even close to the size of the US economy. Economy-wide inflation is best approximated with the GDP deflator not with the CPI. There is no discussion of monetary velocity - the monetary base can increase while circulation falls.

    Prior to the 70s the dollar was backed by gold. After the 70s the dollar was backed by "Do you really want us to overthrow your government and blow your country to pieces?" I'm also curious the effect that the top 1% has on inflation, they typically stockpile vast amounts of wealth which in essence removes it from the market. We've seen that the richest people in the country are now richer than ever after the pandemic print run. Perhaps this printing amounts to a neutral move. People get money and put it in Amazon stock, or buy gadgets on Amazon. Either way Bezos sits on it. Also, if much of the stimulus money was "saved" can we assume it was actually invested in to 401k/IRA accounts and there for locked up for a long period of time?

    "If this set of circumstances sounds familiar, don't worry..." Exactly, because the causes of hyper inflation are way more complex than the stupid analysis done here. In fact, inflation doomsday predicters have been saying the sky is going to fall for over *40 years*. Seriously, how long does a theory have to be wrong before people stop assuming it's true? Also, the S&P example is laughable, because the author assumes, WITHOUT A SHREAD OF PROOF, that the value of the S&P500 shouldn't have gone up during the pandemic.

      Another reason is that builders are not building, they are still anxious about the 2009 bubble.

      @Timothy Pulliam the end of the video is probably a big portion too, if inflation goes crazy they can pay off the assets they are buying up

      @Scott Grindrod it's both. Real estate investors are buying up all of the houses in anticipation of their value going up, precisely because of the scarcity of homes right now. The effect is that they are actually driving up the cost of homes, essentially a bidding war. Except normal people can't compete with these investors, who often pay the full cost of the house upfront, sometimes over asking price. They then rent out the house, adding insult to injury.

      Actually that's because of a chronic lack of supply.

    WHY do you have background sounds that sound like a doorbell every 30 seconds or so? I can't concentrate on the video because I think someone's at the door lol

    But why would this Inflation Influence Stock or Metal and Wood Prices but not the CPI?
