Inflation and government spending

My Pondering

It would be interesting to see this chart with ALL the HYPER inflation of late.

If the FEDS stopped giving away and printing money like drunken sailors, which is an indirect form of taxation as our currency devalues thus most everything costs everyone more, we would actually be in better shape. When you earn money by delivering value in an agreeable exchange between buyer and seller (capitalism) then we don’t have this kind or crazy hyper inflation. When the government redistributes wealth by handouts or manipulation of taxes, as they see fit, picking winners and losers, then we get this hyper inflation and a depressed economy (which are certain to follow under these tactics).

No, I am not an phd economist just a an American businessman in the real world.


Of the things I don’t mind paying taxes, which are essential to a prosperous society, include military protection and law enforcement. Protection is the governments core function whether from invading countries, illegal border crossings or disregard for the law of the land. All too common of late is ‘catch and release’ or ‘look the other way’ where as our current leaders regularly ignore or actually administrate these behaviors is unacceptable.

My Ponderings

Yes it can be used for that. And money can buy you some time.

You can earn more money but not more time.

Money is precious but time more so, if used well.

Let’s appreciate and use both time and money to their fullest.

While at it, let’s always love people and use money (not the other way around).

Whoever brings blessings will be enriched… Pondering Proverbs 11:24 — 25

“One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,
and one who waters will himself be watered.”

Proverbs 11:24 — 25

My take : Some sage, supernatural advice here. Often is contrary to my nature, how about yours?

But it confirms that givers gain. It like the difference between the Sea of Gallilee and the Dead Sea. The one that only receives is the dead. The one that receives and gives is alive and flourishing.

As the late great Zig Ziglar was found of saying, ‘You can have everything in life you want if you help enough others get what they want’.

Time to get to blessing.
