  1. Simply because the price of an item was low during a certain economic period, is a good indication that wages and earnings were also low. Great job in pointing this out.

  2. This video does not explain inflation, it rationalizes it, legitimizes it and then suggests you gamble your savings to try to stay ahead of it. Fiat money sucks!

  3. Actually it was very different. My grandfather could fully pay for college himself with a part time job. Try doing that today.

  4. Correct me if my logic is wrong, but if the demand for certain goods are greater than the supply & it's coursing the prices to rise, than less people will be able to buy it, it means less demand, and it is should lower the prices, so it is should be self adjusting, without something called inflation,isn't it ?

    What do you call demand of a good ?
    I am sure billions of people would like to have a ferrari or a similar sport car (something big value) , how many can afford it ?

  6. At the momen you said "it would be the same" you are wrong… As long as the currency was not printed so much we had a fair deal and worked for fair ammount of payback. Now your work is made worthelss…So as soon as I've heared that you have said that it would be the same I had to hang out…

  8. Thanks for uploading, but personally I believed that inflation originated by the large amount or the quantity of money printed by the government itself. How could inflation happened by the demand and supply equation if people still have the same quantity of money? Of course, the rise in price of commodity did cause higher pay as you exemplified,but ONLY for "a short period of time" and would eventually come down because no one would be able to buy at that price, right? as we have no money in quantity. But, how we were still able to buy such expensive commodity while the price went on and on? That is because we had more quantity of money as to maintain the purchasing power. The government did not CONTROL the supply of money. Instead,it increased the supply or the quantity of money in the monetary system, to be exact. And, that is when the inflation happens not right after the demand and supply equation.

    Where does such quantity of money come from?…  Money printing machine owned by the one and only: GOVERNMENT. 

    Indeed " inflation is taxation without representation"– Milton Friedman

  9. Inflation is NOT rising prices!!! 

    Inflation is an expansion of the money supply. THAT is the REAL definition.
    Inflation is the cause of rising prices, not an effect. Rising prices are an effect of inflation.
    Cause/effect is critical in understanding why prices are rising. 
    Rising prices are NOT a normal monetary function. It is a direct result of printing money that is not backed by a physical commodity (inflating the money supply). There's is no foundation or baseline of value based on a REAL, tangible thing.

  12. Your wealth is diminishing when you put all you money in the bank with 1.5% interest rates
    Try to invest in stocks or houses since their prices usually grows over time

  13. The video doesn't state the #1 reason we have inflation. The government causes inflation to help it default on the enormous debt it has accumulated. Because of a high inflation rate, it can pay back the debt with dollars worth much less than the dollars it borrowed. That's it, corrupt government is why there's so much inflation.

  14. The Banking Cartel(The Fed) loans money to the Government. The money is paid out to welfare butts. The money is in circulation. It is never paid back. Nothing produced except more welfare butts. More fiat money in circulation chasing goods and services. Previous dollars in circulation lose purchasing power. Hence inflation.

  16. Inflation is caused by government spending more than it take in, low interest rates and reckless spending cause inflation, bottom line, spending borrowed money, caused by low interest rates.

  17. If feds print only $10 and government loaned that at 10% interest they must repay $11 so where does that $1 come from since they printed only $10?

    That is mainly where inflation starts. This is the increase in money supply everyone talks about.

  18. This is why you really need to protect your investment. Investing Gold protects investors against a possible catastrophe. That's why many investors bought gold during the 2008 financial crisis. Gold prices continued to skyrocket in response to the eurozone crisis. Investors were also concerned about the impact of Obamacare and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act.

  19. This video doesn’t really explain inflation.
    Also when people say that the buying power of money is the same, it’s not.
    My grandpa with a full time dish washer job could afford to rent a small place, he said he payed rent with less than one check and the other check was For himself.
    Now people need 2 jobs and with 1 job they pay rent and the other paycheck from job 2 is bills and the last check is for them.
