    Our standard of living is determined by how much we produce. I can't imagine that the trend towards producing more would be reversed anytime soon.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The production trends will continue but so will our debt there will come a time when our economy crumbles because of how much the dollar has been devalued over the past hundred years this has been evident throughout history I think the increasing debt and the increasing devaluing of our dollar is the biggest threat that faces America today. w.e. This is a speculation question and can only be answered by speculation

    I really think that our current values of endlessly expanding our population and destroying nature are going to come back and bite us in the ass. This is a finite world people, so perhaps we should consider setting limits?

    The "devaluation of the dollar" is just an accounting issue.

    Wealth is the goods and services that we produce. It doesn't matter how many dollars it takes to buy a widget, what matters is if we produce enough widgets for everyone to have an ample quantity of them.

    The value of the dollar has eroded by something like 98% during the past 100 years, but do we have a lower standard of living today than we did a hundred years ago? I think not.

    Why would that make a difference?

    And is there really a need for interest rates to increase to their historical norm?

    Money is cheap and common these days. It can be produced in unlimited quantity.

    Fortunately, as populations become more wealthy, they tend to have smaller families. Populations in many countries have plateaued.

    Compare crime rates, the necessity for a health care act, the enormous hospital bills, the amount of laws introduced into business and many many many other things that have all been a cause of dollar inflation.

    A few things inflation and devaluing the currency 1) it creates a much harder task for entrepreneurs to effectively review the currency in markets to decide if the price of he market is actually due to rightful business tactics or if the increase in he market is due to inflation. This means, the producers will create far more errors in the calculations of the economy

    2) it forces businesses and consumers to spend time and resources in business security, this is wasteful spending

    3) it creates governmental involvement into the economy through policies, in other words it creates added crony capitalism

    4) it robs peoples of their savings

    5) the entire idea of inflation is an illusion based on waste

    It is not a reflection of " as long as we pay enough money there will be no generic bad purpose of dollar devaluation" it's " we've started purposely devaluing the dollar how long can we last devaluing the dollar to combat the dollar devaluation until our economy collapses?"
