There must certainly be times when regular (and objective) readers ask themselves if it is not me who is “living in fantasy-land” rather than – as alleged again and again in these commentaries – the drones of the mainstream media. There was an example today of an item from Bloomberg (and the “statistic” it contained) which might create such doubts in readers’ minds.
Wholesale prices in the U.S. climbed in December for the first time in three months to cap the smallest annual increase in five years, showing companies face little pressure to charge more… [emphasis mine]
Where is the “hyperinflation” which I (and John Williams, and others) insist is already ‘in the pipes’ of the global monetary/financial system? While readers have seen a chart (on numerous occasions) showing U.S. money-printing in an exponential spiral – a near-vertical line, to be precise – we see wholesale prices actually moving in the opposite direction.
How is this possible? Or, put another way, who is telling the truth? To answer these questions; let me ask an additional and more specific question. Why do precious metals prices not reveal the hyperinflationary pressures which are alleged to exist? Regular readers and knowledgeable precious metals investors would have no difficulty answering that question in a convincing manner: price-suppression.
Over recent years; readers have been supplied with overwhelming evidence of price-suppression/manipulation in precious metals markets, and in a variety of different forms:
1) Bullion-leasing fraud
2) Regulatory malfeasance
3) Falsified data/statistics
4) Outrageous ratios of paper to bullion in markets
5) The collapse of global inventories of gold and silver
Overlaid on top of this; we have the daily price-action in these markets: endless, repetitive examples of vertical lines, as prices “gap” lower (and sometimes) higher in these large, global futures markets. Here readers need to know the history (and math) behind these futures markets.
Why do we even allow these fantasy-markets, where the paper traded by the banker-gamblers of the 21st century exceeds the actual commodities they are trading by fantastic ratios, in the case of bullion, ratios of greater than 100-to-1? Because these very same banker-gamblers assured our governments and (supposed) regulators that these futures markets would bring much greater “liquidity”, and thus near-perfect “price discovery”.
Translation? Futures markets should never gap higher or lower, with the rare exceptions of truly momentous events which can/could cause legitimate surges or plunges in price. The daily trading of the bankers themselves is empirical proof that these markets are being constantly manipulated. The outrageous/indefensible Pied Piper trading algorithms which these banksters use is the “smoking gun” which provides the unequivocal means to perpetrate such market crime.
Thus do we have my broader answer (and rebuttal) to the original questions. Wholesale prices (and the commodities prices which underpin them) do not reveal the enormous hyperinflationary pressures created by the money-printing of our central banks because of the constant price-suppression of the One Bank – across virtually all commodity markets – which depresses the prices which should be indicating those pressures.
Fortunately, there is equally compelling evidence to support my allegation that the same price-manipulation we see on a daily basis in precious metals markets extends across the entire spectrum of commodities. Once again; it is the daily trading of the banksters themselves which provides us with absolutely conclusive evidence.

Regular readers are familiar with my characterization and observations concerning the Corporate media propaganda machine. This oligopoly disseminates its “news” as a single, monolithic herd. This, by itself, is conclusive proof that we are dealing with propaganda (and brainwashing), as any legitimate “free press” always exhibits considerable diversity of opinion.
However, one important facet of this brainwashing/conditioning requires no deceptions or distortions of any kind in order to achieve the desired effect: apathy and confusion. As an inevitable consequence of “inflation” (i.e. the relentless/excessive money-printing of the One Bank); the numbers we use in discussing the parameters of all our economies are increasing, and at an exponential rate.
This phenomenon of arithmetic is known as “creeping zeros”. But what is important for this discussion is not the arithmetic, but the inevitable psychological ramifications of creeping zeros. Specifically, as the numbers increase in size at an exponential rate; our understanding of these numbers decreases – proportionately.
The implication of this is hopefully obvious to most readers: the bigger the crimes of the One Bank, and the faster it piles one mega-crime atop another, the faster we lose the capacity to understand the magnitude of these crimes. When it commits crimes involving numbers which are literally beyond human comprehension, it becomes logically impossible to truly understand these mega-crimes, themselves.
It is necessary to inject some hard numbers here to facilitate understanding. The largest number which we puny humans can fully understand is (roughly) one million. It requires no academic credentials to make such an assertion, because the basis for this conclusion is tautological in nature.
Generally speaking (and as simple, common sense), we can only “understand” what we are capable of perceiving with our senses. You cannot explain “colour” to someone who has been blind all of their lives. You cannot explain “music” to someone who has been deaf all of their lives. They lack the sensory capacity to genuinely understand such concepts.
Similarly; while we can be told what an “atom” is, we cannot truly grasp the nature of these particles – save for the very few who can observe them (somewhat) via the aid of an electron microscope. This lack of comprehension also applies to phenomena in the universe which are too large for our comprehension.
It is accepted universally that the universe itself is beyond our intellectual grasp. When we look into the night sky; our (unaided) vision extends only out into a small portion of a single galaxy. And even boosted to the greatest extent which our technology allows; we still know our vision our encompasses a microscopic portion of infinity.
The question here then becomes: what is the demarcation point of our comprehension; at what point do numbers themselves become too large for us to understand? The answer to that question is “one million.”
For city-dwellers who have access to elevated viewpoints; we can see one million – the populations of our own cities. We can’t actually “see” the one million (puny) inhabitants themselves, but we can see their dwellings, from which it is a very small extrapolation of logic to comprehend the number of inhabitants. Anything beyond one million is too large for us to truly understand, because it is totally beyond our sensory capacity.
We can have a very crude understanding of one billion, as it is the concept of quantum immediately above the largest number we genuinely understand (and the numerical representation of the entire, human population). But once we reach “trillions”; such numbers become totally outside of any/all mathematical comprehension of virtually our entire species.
The natural question which would occur in the minds of many readers is: what makes me competent to engage in an analysis of this nature – as an authority – when I am also a puny human, capable of fully understanding no number larger than a million?
