Inflation in terms of Gold: To me this puts everything in perspective
#inflation #federalreserve @DiMartinoBooth
1) in 1970 the minimum wage was $1.45 per hour and an ounce of gold was worth roughly $39 per ounce. So it took 27 hours to earn an ounce of gold.
2) 2019 minimum wage at $7.25 per hour and an ounce of gold at roughly $1,325 per ounce. This equates to 183 hours to earn an ounce of gold.
3) Todays Gold price of $1,325 per ounce divided by the 1970 hours to earn an ounce (27 hours) equals roughly $50.

« des contre-vérités #économiques alimentent depuis deux mois, dans une sorte d'auto-empoisonnement psychologique, les colères, les frustrations et les ressentiments, justifiant les revendications financières les plus fantaisistes et les plus irréalistes »…
« D'abord, la France y apparaît comme l'un des pays les plus égalitaires au monde. Un peu moins égalitaire, certes, que les pays scandinaves, mais beaucoup plus égalitaire que les pays anglo-saxons, les pays d'Europe du Sud, sans même parler des pays émergents. »
« Enfin, contrairement à une idée très répandue et nourrie par les discours nostalgiques sur les Trente Glorieuses, la France est aujourd'hui bien moins inégalitaire qu'elle ne l'était il y a cinquante ans et infiniment moins qu'il y a un siècle (Gini était à 0,460). »

#Fintwit needs a reminder regarding #inflation / #deflation

INFLATION is the expansion of the supply of money (money meaning currency, digital etc).

A result of MORE currency chasing limited goods/services is PRICE INCREASES, which people mistakenly call INFLATION

INFLATION erodes purchasing power. Prices correct to reflect:


Prices go up and down

Money supply inflates or deflates

DEFLATION is the contraction of money supply

Less money chasing limited goods/services = lower prices

Deflation is often confused with the fruits of capitalism - productivity, scale and competition.

Ex) There hasn’t been “deflation” in computer prices. Computer prices are

If we advance GS financial conditions forward by 3 months it is likely that real GDP growth and leading economic indicators continue to track lower.

Global #inflation rates according to the IMF's website (link in thread). The immigration crisis everyone keeps ignoring isn't going away. Things will get worse. MSM politics has got everyone looking the other way.

Criticality theory.

They all had high hopes. No longer."

"It changed in the last six weeks."

Anecdotes, but expected.

The Fed builds dysfunction into the economy with low rates - it shows when rates rise.

A sharp break to be expected after years of zero Fed rate and then increased Fed rates. Criticality Theory.

What is Rule 72?
In personal finance, if you divide the number 72 by the rate of interest, you get to know the number of years it will take for you to double the money..
Eg: if the rate of interest is 9%, simply divide the number 72 by 9 and the answer is 8. Thus it will take 8 years to double your money if you invest at 9% p.a. rate of interest.
We can use this rule in reverse to know the rate of interest needed to double your money to achieve your set goal.

2/ Russia's yield rose after the sanctions announcement, but from macro point of view, sanctions on new #ruble debt won't be catastrophic
3/ In response to the ruble weakening on the sanctions news, Russia's central bank reduced planned purchases of FX and the ruble pared losses after that step
