This leads to the true reality of the conditions we now face. Your standard of living is dropping and you don't even notice. You will not notice until it finally hits you like a ton of bricks. Humans are remarkably skilled at adapting to circumstances. Only when an extreme is reached are they likely to notice what has happened.
In 1971, a working father could support a family of four as the sole provider. Today, he works the same job and his income combined with his partner's income barely funds a mediocre existence. The average American has no savings and is financially illiterate.
For those who care to dust off their brains for a final attempt at rational thought, we must seek investments that offer shelter from these trends. Gold remains the most simple and pure hedge against the natural instinct of politicians.

Whatever you settle on please be sure that your capital is deployed in an asset class that responds inversely to a devalued dollar caused by unstoppable money creation.
