6. Visualizing the Buying Power of the U.S. Dollar Over the Last Century…

The value of money is not static. In the short term, it may ebb and flow against other currencies on the market. In the long-term, a currency tends to lose buying power over time through inflation, and as more currency units are created. Inflation is a result of too much money chasing too few goods – and it is often influenced by government policies, central banks, and other factors. In this short timeline of monetary history in the 20th century, we look at major events, the change in money supply, and the buying power of the U.S. dollar in each decade. Via Visual Capitalist.

    I just can’t read anymore articals, or listen to the radio, my stomach has been flip flopping for two days now. It’s time to be on our knees, and getting right with our Lord. Everyone have a blessed Good Friday, and wonderful Easter with your loved ones.

    • Prepared Grammy says:

      I’m both bothered by and craving more information about the current events on tv. I need to go outside, get my hands dirty, and focus on what our Savior did for us on this day.

      • Understand that the left AND the globalists are lying to you or to put it more correctly using propaganda to change what you think. Right now they need to convince a lot of Americans that Trump and/or the military lied about the sarin attack or even better that we somehow were complicit in the attack to use it as a false flag. There is an all out attack on Trump and the administration. They need “their guys” back in power. They need to spread a lot of fake news to do it. Use this opportunity to discover who is creating the fake news.

    #10 – A year ago I attended a meeting, one of many throughout the state to inform Texans of this. The meetings encouraged attendees to contact their representatives to pass legislation for EMP hardening. According to the article, the assessment could take a year and a half. At the meeting, we were told that EMP hardening would take 2-3 years. IMO it’s too little too late. One good result from the initial meetings was the interest in prepping and self sufficiency.

  3. I am a bit concerned about NK. They don’t seem to care what the response to their provocations is. Prabably because they have gotten their way for 50+ years.

  4. Now is the time to talk to God, get youself right with the world, check your food storage and become the grey peerson.Be very obeservant, careful and on guard. Lots of prayers. Happy Easter

    #10 The Texas grid is also linked to Mexico’s northern grid to buy and sell power back and forth. Has been since 2000. There were projects to link to Mexico in Phoenix/ Sonora and California in the Baja area.
