Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

Interesting Law Suit

There are those who consider that inflation is theft; certainly it is interesting that a Chinese woman is suing the U.S. Federal Reserve on the grounds that since it has a monopoly on printing money, its recent printing bonanza has devalued the woman's assets.

The picture below shows a Bank of England £10 note issued in 1934; never mind what the official statistics claim, I maintain that today the equivalent would be in the order of £700.

That should serve to show exactly what the Chinese woman is getting at.

Until the next time.
