    My suggestion is stay the hell away from reefer unless you enjoy that life. Flatbed and dry van are world's better in my opinion and flatbed is a great way to get good pay without chasing miles .

    There has been a ton of "quantitative easing" and inflation hasn't been a problem yet.

    Some so-called experts believe that deflation is a larger concern, at least in the near term.

    Negative interests rates may come to the USA. Could you imagine all digital currency and negative interest rates? Couldn’t even keep it in your stash.

    Yeah, negative interest on your savings but still want 10+% interest on your credit card unless you raise hell.

    Are you out of your mind? In 1998 a whopper was 89 cents. Now theyre $4 something and its the identical sandwich. Gas was also around 95 cents for the same gallon.

    Compare a new car or a pair of shoes or acre of land now vs then. Most things cost 300 to 400% more paper money for the same item. Flashlight batteries, can of soda etc etc. Used to be 50 cents for a coke now $2.

    Its a big trick to measure "inflation" against a basket of fiat currencies that are all flying off the printing press and whos supply is ever in flux. Measure your dollar off how many of them it takes to acquire the same basic staple products you have always bought with it. A can of walmart ether was 95 cents back before the dotcom days, its $3 now. Wd40 hasnt changed a bit.. Dang near $7!

    "Inflation" as a measure is a lie.. Supposedly a phenomenon where a rapidly growing economy causes a spurt of freshly earned money to compete for the same roughly fixed quantity of goods. But todays mechanized production is so rapid that the supply can jump up very quickly compared to the days of humans cobbling your order together in steam driven factories.

    What you need to measure is the DILUTION of your currency by intentional over printing schemes to harm us. Thats all this constant "stimulus" is and we are too stupid to figure it out. Over 200 years ago simple men knew there were two waves to enslave a nation. "By the sword or by debt." Dilution makes debt slaves who cannot counter attack.

    "Debauch the currency" is a bolshevik warfare tactic. Theres more commies here now than ever before and they think they want a revolution. Extreme inflation usually causes one.

    My stash was found; $10K worth of it; cash, not weed. Gradually getting it built back up, but found a better hiding place.
