    We had a severe drought and tomatoe prices topped out at $9.90 / kg, they then normalised to around $2.90 / kg, we've had plenty of rainfall since but prices are back to $9.90 / kg. Inflation seems to be beginning at the supermarket, but house prices are set to decline overall, unless wages increase ratiometrically to the increase in money supply, I think there will be at least a 20% haircut to property prices but essential items like groceries will increase in price, therefore I voted for inflation. But this is a tricky situation we're heading into...

    I went with 'infaltion'; this novel word must be a description of early deflation and eventual hyper-inflation.
    " If you are on the wrong road progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. There is nothing progressive about being pig-headed and refusing to admit a mistake. And I think if you look at the present state of the world it's pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistake. We're on the wrong road. And if that is so we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on.” ---C. S. Lewis

    I've been hearing first deflation, then hyperinflation.

    I went with inflation.

    Off topic: What I find troubling about this is how willing the American people are to sacrifice their liberties for a few sheckles.

    Stagflationary depression.

    Severe price inflation in food and necessities.
    Stocks and real estate prices will gradually decline despite FED monetization
    World demographics are deflationary
    Dollar will remain strong until foreigners have cleared their dollar-denominated debts and assets
    Foreign central banks will sell US treasury and dollar reserves and guy gold
    When the 10y and 30y yeilds start to rise and rise with the gold price the collapse of the US dollar has begun

    I can't predict timing. No one saw this COVID-19 thingy coming and no one saw the market crash coming. I am positioning for dollar collapse now. I'd rather be early than a minute late.

    When they lift state of emergency in mid May at the same time as the stimulus hits the wallets, expect extreme inflation. Everyone would like to spend whatever they have in cash but there will be little to buy. For those who would like to earn a lot of money this summer buy a bar now as it is very cheap. People will want to party this summer with the extra cash infusion. Sell it in end of August for 5 times what you bought it for...

    This, but with ongoing hoarding, scarcity is now a given.
