what is a 'strong' dollar and why it matters to inflation:
US dollar is said to be strong if it is increasing its value against other currencies that we use for trade. The relative strength of the dollar affects inflation. Probably the most important measure is 'Dollar Index'...
USDollar Index or DXY measures performance of the dollar against a basket of other currencies including the EURO, by far, the largest component of the index, making up 57.6% of the basket followed by JPYen (13.6%), GBPound (11.9%), CAD (9.1%), Krona (4.2%)& Swiss Franc (3.6%)...
as a worker, you want the DXY above 100, which means the dollar is 'strong' or gaining in value against foreign currencies. This makes imports cheaper& since we import everything, this stretches your buying power further. Businesses want a 'weak' dollar to make exports cheaper...
guess which policy the government has been favoring for the past few decades? mid 80's and mid90's were tthestrongest times for consumers and you cna see the dollar climbing on hte chart. Recently, you can see that whenever we even get near 100, the Fed steps in to raise rates...
the Fed is forced to raise interest rates when inflation gets to high, like now. So when they do, it'll also weaken your buying power. So, to stop prices rising, the Fed will make everything you buy more expensive. But it will help Coca-Cola& isnt that all that really matters?...
and yes, Coke will also have a weaker dollar, but they'll just go into the bond market and buy billions of dollars worth of bonds that are guaranteed to rise in value, as they are tied to the Fed rates increases. This inflation hedge makes profit on top of export price increases
money supply should grow at the same rate as the economy
"Broad M2 money supply in China rose 9.0% from a year earlier to CNY 238.29 trillion in December 2021, following an 8.5% increase in the previous month and beating market expectations of 8.7%"

chart above shows how china stuck to their monetary policy, while we diverged wildly, throwing money at any suit on wall street like the whores they are. Jerome Powell &Fed Board of bored apes did that cause they cant think of anything else to do in crisis but wipe rich ppls butt
