The govenment will tell you there's no inflation, but for those who go shopping they can see it with their own eyes. Monetary expansion through bond purchases has led to inflation 100% of the time and has been documented in many countries including Germany, Japan, Britain, and Brazil. Sometimes there's a lag of several years but it always correlates 100%. To think this time it will be different is like believing you can throw a ball up in the air and it won't come down.

The lag this time, is the result of China pegging the yuan to the dollar, which caused inflation in China. They just recently gave up the peg because inflation was a huge problem. Unfortunately, those dollars are coming back.

A guy gave his broker all his money because he was going to cyrogenics (frozen state). He woke up 20 years later and called his broker. Broker told him you're a multimillionaire! The operator then interrupted the call and said, "Please deposit $250,000, you're 3 minutes are up. That's inflation. It destroys economies and countries.
