War and Inflation – 3 reasons:
- From Ernest Hemingway: “The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists.” This was true before WWII and is just as true now.
- There are reports of a train load of American tanks passing through Latvia to Lithuania.
- The US is trying to provoke Russia into war, perhaps nuclear war, through the use of sanctions, pressure on the exchange rate of the Ruble, weak oil prices, and military maneuvers. R. 758 overwhelmingly passed the U.S. House of Representatives on 4 December 2014. It brings the United States closer to a serious military confrontation with Russia.
