Been reading Galaxy's Edge series. "Military Sci-fi". Blasters and tanks, and space fighters and ....

It's like a man's version of Star Wars (did I say that out loud?)

Here's one of the author's web pages:

you can find the books on kindle/amazon etc. good stuff.

I may have mentioned this one here, before. He just got it out to Amazon

https://troygrice.com/2019/11/08/cog-is ... ck-it-out/

That's his blog; link to the Amazon listing there. Or you can go to Amazon and type in his name, Troy Grice.

It's Vonnegut style and preposterous at times. Acerbic. (I'm not getting paid for this review)

HOW GOVERNMENT MANIPULATES MONEY AND PRODUCES INFLATION
by Edward W. Younkins


The whole inflation thing may be the real key to our undoing. Instead of a working man banking his $20 gold piece and sleeping soundly knowing it will retain its wealth until he retires, he must play the stock market, wheel and deal real estate and other items to stay ahead which is difficult to do. Most importantly our federal government uses it to finance endless wars and encourage profligate spending with the next users of money, e.g. state and local governments and now foreign governments and individuals who tie into our economic system. No one can ever stay ahead. I think this system degrades us morally from many angles.

jackass.....investing is not that hard....the hard thing is finding someone with your good interests at heart so that they can find you investments that are so good that they also invest in them. I am glad that my parents found two such people so that I can just let my investments ride with theirs.

Now for books it is Hard to beat The ABCs of Reloading. Even the copies from the sixties are a good read.

You're not getting my point. People never had to invest before the Federal Reserve Act and especially before FDR took us off the gold standard in 1933. Their money did not evaporate sitting in the bank or in their pocket.

My grandfather got a bonus of $20 (a $20 gold piece) in the Depression which was a big deal back then, $1471 in today's money. If they had kept the gold piece, it would of retained its value nicely. If they put it in the bank, it would have lost most of its worth.

In addition, people were taxed a whole lot less back then and most people in the Depression were not subject to the other gift from President Wilson's era, the Revenue Act of 1916 (income tax) as we are today. Or the myriad of other taxes, near 50% at this point however you are calculating.

Inflation is a beast that will consume us all and no matter how fast you run this bear will eventually catch up and eat you. And taxation is the other.
