America can’t afford more socialism

Note the rounds of 19th century and early 20th century immigration led to debt spikes?

Third Worlders in the First World are just economic parasites. It’s IQ and high time preference.

Spoiled privileged Yang truly promises a Boomer bailout of mortgages via a blisteringly obvious planned rent hike* (since all the poor would suddenly be good for it) and you don’t need extra ‘money’ to end the welfare cliff. It’s a pen stroke away to step the payments down gradually.

America’s net worth is negative too, more socialism will cause hyperinflation – and then, invasion.

People ate leather sofas in Weimar Germany and licked wallpaper glue.

Allegedly they ate babies. This would be mathematically worse.

What’s to stop the sneaky QE of UBI leading to price raises across the board from all sectors? Especially food.

Nothing. That’s what.

People are celebrating a termite in their savings.

UBI: It’s the missing link between inflation and hyperinflation.

The ‘basic’ is a clue. It’ll go on basics – 1. rent, 2. food, 3. medical.

“Universal” – you have no choice whether to go into debt. No choice. But rich people will get a bailout, no means testing. Fair? About inequality? No and no.

The distance between the poor guy with $0 and the rich guy with a million will be exactly the same if you give both two grand. Perhaps higher, because increasing monetary supply directly causes one thing.

Prices will rise. Regardless of specific agents e.g. landlords.

So spending power of the poor guy will decrease.

Go ahead, vote for it. I wanna see what happens.

You cannot consider income without expense.

It’s an equation, it has two sides.

If only there were an economic law to explain this concept, of supplying and demanding…

*The average hippy American Boomer seriously considers their house their pension. That is factual.

Map the top chart onto spending power, I dare you.

Tell Yang you’ll have UBI under one condition: rent controls. He won’t do it.

UK Inflation calculator

This is atrocious and should be demanded in schools.

I chose to look at % of inflation according to a WW2 year, I chose 1943. Nice and snug in there.

Over 4,000% inflation since then.

Four-thousand.

Before this, I chose to look at the value of a single British pound coin, also in 1943.
To purchase the same goods now, you would require over £40. 

Don’t we already have hyperinflation?

Am I missing something obvious here?

How is this not?!!

happy bateman

At this point, I’m officially out of ideas.
The deeper I go, the greater the mess.

Anyone else hear the distant thunder?
Oh wait, that’s jackboots.

I’m not fiddling the data here by cherrypicking a year, I chose one late on purpose.

Look at the charts elsewhere!

LOOK AT IT.

Now if someone could map these onto a Left/Labour red or Right/Tory blue government, we might be able to spot a pattern. Re Whose Fault This Is.

I wonder if American historians will look back and say it wasn’t worth upsetting Putin over the Olympics.

STFU and pay attention to the truth you little bitches we are trying to help you!
