Easy money prompts market makers to price higher and take more
knowing it exists. It's fairly closely coupled. Don't worry much about
small numeric X-flation. Unless the swings are faster than the time
needed for it to pass through the market back to your wallet as income.
Example: steep swings in commodities like petrol, gold, steel, and
bitcoin often make one consider stockpiling for resale so you don't
get priced out before then. Then you have long term, like does your
money still allow you to buy the same quantity and quality of goods
and services. That's the kicker. Economics is one thing, weird
shit being done to and with markets is something else.
Ask Bilderberg et al on that one.
