Shrinkflation – Real Inflation Much Higher Than Reported

by Mark O’Byrne, Gold Core:

  • Shrinkflation – Real inflation much higher than reported and realised
  • Shrinkflation is taking hold in consumer sector
  • Important consumer, financial, monetary and economic issue being largely ignored by financial analysts, financial advisers, economists, central banks and the media.
  • Food becoming more expensive as consumers get less for price paid
  • A form of stealth inflation, few can avoid it
  • Brexit is the scapegoat for shrinkflation by the media and companies
  • Consumers blame retailers rather than central banks
  • Gold hedge has doubled in value since 2007 

Shrinkflation: no one left untouched

600 new words entered our official lexicon this week as the Oxford English Dictionary announced the latest new additions to their online records.

One of the words reportedly up for consideration was shrinkflation. It did not make the final cut and as a result continues to be defined by the authority as ‘a portmanteau, made from combining shrink: ‘to become or make smaller in size’, with the economic sense of inflation: ‘a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money’.

In order for a word to be accepted into the OED it must have been in use for at least five years. But the latest list suggests that this isn’t the case and exceptions can be made. The inclusion of ‘superbrat’, a word which is usually associated with the behaviour of John McEnroe in the 1970s, actually dates back to the the 1950s.

    Time for a cartoon that explains everything so that even I can understand what is going on. https://youtu.be/mII9NZ8MMVM

    @Vidoctr,
    I love that little cartoon, as it is the most entertaining, funny, and ACCURATE lesson about world banks, our banks, taxation, fiat money, gold, debt, etc.

    I have posted it a number of times here at SGT, and people always love it.

    It should be shown in every school, every 6 months, and shown every 4 months in every university.
