    It is worthless if not backed by something.

    Do you know the definition of INFLATION?

    Ooooh, pick me. I can think of about 10 different types of inflation off the top of my head:
    1. Currency inflation
    2. M1 inflation
    3. M2 inflation
    4. Consumer Price Inflation
    5. Personal Consumption Expenditures
    6. Producer Price Inflation
    7. Import Price Inflation
    8. Export Price Inflation
    9. Employment Cost Inflation
    10. Wage inflation


    Which one did you want a definition for, and how detailed? I can give anywhere from an elementary school level to PhD. level definition.

    Paranoia -
    a tendency on the part of an individual or group toward excessive or irrational suspiciousness and distrustfulness of others

    The alt-left & the alt-right are both violent, race-hate groups whose obsession with identity politics is tearing America apart.

    I've never met an anti-Semite who thought they were anti-Semitic. Remember that the Nazis didn't see themselves as bad people. If don't like Jews or think Hitler was misunderstood, you are an idiot and can go screw yourself.

    Economists are a dime a dozen.

    If you placed all the economists end to end from here to the Sun, they would never reach a conclusion.

    Hey, Economists have correctly predicted nine of the last three recessions.

    But my point was that there is no such singular force/entity as "inflation," and not all the different types move together. You can have monetary inflation without price inflation, and vice-versa. Producer Price, and Import Price inflation occur before Consumer Price inflation. Employment Cost can increase at a much different or opposite rate than wage inflation. And even with monetary inflation, M0, M1, and M2 can all move differently depending on a variety of circumstances.

    I'm not citing opinion, I'm stating facts based on generally agreed upon definitions.

    I am saying that if money gets printed without a GDP to back it, inflation will result.

    The U.S. dollar experienced an average inflation rate of 2.92% per year between 1900 and 2014. $100 in the year 1900 is worth $2,666.46 in 2014, a 2566.5%increase in prices. The inflation rate in 2014 was 1.62%.
