Video: Printing Press Money and the Cost of Tomatoes

Dear brothers and sisters,

All of a sudden organic tomatoes are now $4-5 per pound. Organic grapes  are $3.50. Organic potatoes $4.00. Inflation is, in effect, a tax; it is especially burdensome on the poor and those in modest circumstances.

The Federal Reserve  has created trillions of dollars out of thin air; this has led to an enormous stock market bubble and a housing bubble.

The trouble with printing-press money is that it distorts and destroys the real economy.It seems likely that the dollar will collapse and, sadly enough, food prices will soar. Grocery shelves will empty and hyperinflation is just around the corner.

We say “Let’s get growing, brothers and sisters!”  Now, in late Autumn, you can prepare the soil to start your Victory Garden in Spring. Go ahead, build a compost pile and give yourself the satisfaction of seeing every carrot top, apple core and banana peel turn into life-giving humus.

Brothers and sisters, let’s together with neighbors and friends and plant here an edible schoolyard for the American spirit.

Please except our best wishes for good health, prosperity and success to you and your family,

Jesse Schwartz
