And yes, inflation is hittin' food hard.

I don't envy the Federal Reserve and other governing bodies right now whose job it is to try to prevent either rapid inflation or a depression—since we're heading in opposite directions for that on different parts of the economy right now.

6 they get what they deserve

 

we've been putting things off and just print money to get a sugar high to stimulate the economy. The economy looks vibrant but only because of the massive steroids they're pumping into the system.  


after i cleaned out so much shit i lost my watch... tbh it's what happens when i get two pairs of the same thing


i can tell you that involution in the states is not going to get any easier.... the amount of electronic catharsis around...

Eh... In the past couple years the alternatives to egregiously printing money were raising taxes on those who could afford it (which there's never any will for) or just giving everyone whose jobs went away from Covid the big middle finger. From the choices available, I don't see anything better.

8 the problem with flooding the market with lots of money is that theres no where the money can go- so it gets absorbed into the least productive parts of the economy, the real estate

 

if you put it into the stock market then it ultimately becomes some kind of rent extraction and makes everybody work harder for no gain - thats the original term of involution. I believe it was funded by the CIA , to study the agricultural output of indonesia (https://www.worldcat.org/title/agricultural-involution-the-process-of-ecological-change-in-indonesia/oclc/1905899) specifically the phenomenon where your output is not keeping up with productivity. In another words, you're spinning in neutral gears, hence involution, rather than the more positive evolution.

Disregarding the Covid-related stuff of the past two years for a moment, that doesn't seem like a good description of our economic problems in general. Productivity per capita working on producing things is way up, surely. Rather, wealth leaves the working class like produce leaving the colonies for Europe; not paid for, because the (increasingly effective) means of this industry are owned wholly by those who already had money, just as in the industrial revolution.

Only once we get down to what the rest of us are doing with the scraps—a lot of menial but necessary jobs taking care of our fellow workers, restaurants and deliveries and cleaning and whatever—do we have a situation where we just work harder and harder without seeing any increase in productivity per person.

...Well, that's probably not totally fair but I think there's a grain of truth or something there. I'm sleepy so I may be rambling a little.

Anyway that sort of mood was how we ended up with Marxism and whatnot, but I don't think I'll ever me a Marxist regardless. He got some many things right about what the problem was, but like all societal problems, identifying what's wrong is much easier than working out a viable solution.

10 yes marx did not fully explore state government, particularly military industrial complex, as instrumental to developing ones macro-economy. It's why small states are not in charge of their own destiny.


i think is capital leaving for europe and for the US, which is a safe haven. IDK


The most secure place for money in this world is also the cause of its greatest instability....
