    It's scary that the majority of people are unaware of the risk in holding onto fiat. Hyperinflation is coming. Not financial advice, you do you. Michael Burry, the man who got rich predicting the 2008 financial crisis, warned us all in a tweet of potential Weimar Germany like inflation. Then...

    What is the price of gas where you live? Include a picture if you can. It's almost $3/ gallon in southeastern Pennsylvania. The national average price of gas in the U.S. has risen 20.8% since the end of January. It’s on track to hit an average of $3 per gallon this week. I wonder what...

    I couldn't believe it. My favorite was the 25 pounds, assorted types including rice for $150. I have just taken it for granted because my Walmart has been OK but WTF?

    I was asking myself some questions today about the amount of money in circulation and what kind of effect that has been having on the national and world economy. What I saw was a familiar pattern, exponential growth, in both the amount of money circulating worldwide, and in the population. I...

    Regarding peanuts and the current heat wave this summer, does anyone know if drought conditions are forecast for the US peanut growing regions? I would like to have some info on whether peanut butter prices are predicted to double again this year. Thanks. CSM101

    Even WASR-10s are over $400 these days. Late 1980s Russian AKs were $79 with wood stock, and $99 for a folding stock. Wish I would have bought a case of them.

    Found this little fun fact, something to look forward to if the S hits the fan. During the American revolution, inflation was so great that the price of corn rose 10,000%, the price of wheat 14,000%, the price of flour 15,000%, and the price of beef 33,000%.

    Time to buy your last remaining preps. I just read a USA Today article about rising prices and what they predict will rise rapidly over the next couple of months. Very interesting. We already see it in many things such as rice, wheat, corn, silver, gold and gas The article is called; "That's...

    I bought a Katadyn Vario off of Amazon on March 30th, 2011 for $73.84. Today that same unit is $89.90. The Hiker Pro has gone up just about the same amount over the last few days. For those that don't have one, I think it would be wise to pick one or two up while there are still some available.

    I'm surprised I haven't seen this graph until now, but I think it's a pretty clear indicator as to what has happened and what is likely to happen down the road.
