Look at this graph:
It shows what economists call the "monetary base," which in plain English just means the amount of paper money and coins in circulation, plus bank deposits at the Federal Reserve. Banks use their Federal Reserve deposits as a "base" on which to pyramid loans to businesses and consumers.
Look at the gigantic spike near the right-hand side of the graph. Kind of sticks out like a sore thumb, doesn't it? Beginning late last year, the Fed doubled the monetary base within two or three short months. From the graph we can see that the previous doubling of the monetary base took about 14 years.
Enjoy the sales and low prices while they last. At least we have debit cards now, so we won't have to push around wheelbarrows full of paper money like they did in Weimar Germany during their hyperinflation in the 1920s. It'll just be a race to see who can swipe their debit cards the fastest. When the value of the currency falls moment by moment, even seconds can make all the difference.
