When bankers inflate the currency, the rate of inflation is always 100%.
There are several ways of disguising that rate of inflation, however, and making it appear less than it actually is; all those ways involve "reducing consumption."
The first way to "reduce consumption" is to murder unborn children. Infanticide is the ultimate "reduction of consumption." (If a baby is murdered before he draws his first breath, he will never consume anything.) This is why abortion is legal, in our masonic hellhole.
Another way, is to get women to tie up their own fallopian tubes. (The birth rate depends almost entirely upon the number of fertile females in the population.) This is how & why we got "feminist careerism." "Useful idiot" Gloria Steinem can write her drivel from now until her death, but she has never had a child; which is just what the international banksters wanted her to do, all along.
The third way is the old standby, homosexuality. Queers don't reproduce. That's why bankerdom subtly encourages homosexual perversion.
The international bankers can of course get rid of the young men through wars; Casey Sheehan, et al.
The income tax also "reduces consumption," which is why we have it.
You could extend this list some more, of course, but I think you get the idea. These are the main reasons why so-called "modern" society looks like a Steven King novel, illustrated by M.C. Escher.
