especially on the gold related threads. perhaps i don't understand, but it looks to me as if inflation is relatively normal, not high at all. so i wonder if any of you people talking about needing wheel-barrows to buy bread and Weimar Germany 1923 could back up your pessimism.

looking at stats for inflation right now we are at about 3.5% - compare this to over 6% in 1990 and over 14% (!) in the early 80's
