    Inflation getting you down?

    More like getting your savings down. Here in Halifax, minimum wage increased three times in recent years, causing food prices to increase dramatically. Yesterday, I went and bought some gold. It was a long walk in the sun to buy gold coins, just like in a Western. It's sad because I have no choice but to become a character in a Western, lol.

    The Canadian dollar is backed by the USD (oh dear). Canada also sold off all its gold reserves (gulp). I feel more secure with gold now, though I wish I had made the move a few years back. Are you guys doing anything to protect your earnings from inflation, and did you feel forced into it?

    Also, any advice for new gold buyers? Should I buy a cloth sack and a cowboy hat too?

    Re: Inflation getting you down?

    The thing that bugs me the most is the rapidly increasing cost of beef. When we were kids, beef was so cheap relative to everything else, we could grill out all the time, we had steak multiple times a week. Now, even cheap cuts are many times more than chicken and pork.

    Sirloin goes for like $8/lb when on sale. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts 1.99/lb pretty much daily, boneless thighs are the same, pork is ~3.99/lb for tenderloin. What happened to beef?

    Meat is the most environmentchallengy thing to produce, so I guess it gets worse. Maybe eat less meat.

    When My meat gets inflated action need to be taken to send it back down.
    Happily It can be self inflected.

    (OK - thats 3 comments like that in a row you girls need to stop sending me the straight lines like that or I'm going to have to do something about this...)

    I may have to take matters into my own hands.

    You're talking about personal growth rather than economic.

    Thanks. *blushes*

    Your personal growth is not going to help Stevinators' meat problem, which is of a different nature. He's been explicit enough about it.

    That makes me think of one of the newer Beavis & Butthead episodes!

    To skip through, watch the first 1:30, then skip to 9:30 - 11:30.

    ...the answer was always with us...
