I don't know why inflation hasn't run rampant like has often happened in other economies. Because our money is basically worthless. We are around 19 trillion in debt. And it is getting worse all the time. Each year we have to pay around 420 billion just on the interest of that debt. Also, there are around 61 trillion dollars worth of unfunded obligations in the U.S. Maybe somebody would like to quibble about the difference between a debt and an obligation. But it doesn't matter to me. So all together, we are around 80 trillion dollars in the hole. For every man, woman and child in the U.S., that means they owe around $250,783.00. That is far more than the vast majority of people could ever afford in their entire lives. So I say we just dump the dollar and invent a new currency. Or we could have our dollar turn into this.
