HYPERINFLATION WATCH: Banana Duct-Taped To Wall Sells For $120,000 As “Fine Art”, Some Random Dude Pulls It Off Wall And Eats It

Meanwhile, silver, so rare that not even everybody could have an ounce if they wanted an ounce, can be had for less than seventeen bucks!

Here’s a look at the last two installments of the Hyperinflation Watch:

Notice the separation of dates?

That’s not to be disregarded, but rather, noted, as “velocity of money” starting to pick-up speed.

And sure enough, not even one month later, I’m writing the latest installment of the Hyperinflation Watch.

Remember: Hyperinflation starts at the extremities, and we see already see hyperinflation right now at the extreme bottom and extreme top.

At the extreme bottom, we can point to examples like cigarettes sold individually in convenience stores or putting a $20 cell phone case on a 2-year, zero percent interest rate installment pay plan with the service provider.

Go to any inner-city convenience store or a Sprint retailer and you can see that kind of hyperinflation too.

I imagine the other phone companies are the same.

At the extreme top, we see $1,900,000 bottles of whisky and $46,000 crabs, and after today’s installment of the Hyperinflation Watch, I’m starting to think the crab was undervalued.

Regardless, i’m not sure what to call it at the extreme top?

Society going bananas?


That’s probably the right word for it.


Because that’s how people behave when they either have no idea what honest money is, or that’s how people behave when they want society to go on exactly as it has gone on for the past decade, in perpetuity.

And no, I’m not talking about the guy eating the banana.

I’m talking about the people who would, and did, buy the dang thing.

To each his own, for I’m not one to judge what a person spends his or her mathematically guaranteed to fail, debt-based fiat currency on, but not all of these people can be idiots, and believe me, there will come a time, very soon, and very-very soon, when a light bulb turns on in the heads of those who can afford $120,000 bananas and haven’t yet gone full idiot, and when the light bulb turns on, they will get it, and they will be in a mad scramble to get physical gold & physical silver.

Meanwhile, behold the $120,000 duct-taped banana, and the man who didn’t buy it, eating it:

There is a valuable lesson to be learned here today.

ONLY the very ultra-rich can afford to be late.

For the rest of us, we MUST be early.

You either have gold, or not.

You’ve got silver, or not.

Before hyperinflation.

And why is that?

For in hiding.

They’ll go.

Too late!




Stack accordingly…
