Almost everyone I know has been trying to purchase products and services...anything and everything...doesn't seem to matter what it is. And these folks are not wastefully spending coronabux if they qualify for the handouts. Washing machines, kitchen cabinets, kayaks, mountain bikes, you name it, but they cant find it. The sales people all say the same thing, "we are backed up on product and orders for 6 months," or something similar. People looking for tradesmen to do construction, electrical, plumbing, roofing etc. are getting the same response, everything is backed up for months.

The corona thing has artificially produced a labor shortage with layoffs and restructuring of the labor force that can no longer operate at the numbers and densities of people per work area, and hence a labor/product shortage worldwide.

This is a clear tactic of the socialist/communist playbook. One example is Stalin usurping the entire small family farms for the good of the state. Stalin then starved/killed millions of dissidents by controlling the food supply, many of which lost their livelihood of farming, and growing the same food that those families have done for generations, and could no longer work or afford to feed themselves.

Inflation Via Scarcity is clearly a socialist/communist principle, and we're living it now. Post your personal experiences of product/labor shortages please. Good luck out there folks.

It is crazy, you can’t find people who want to work

Why should they when the government gives them unlimited unemployment plus a 600/week premium (more than they were making), plus stimulus and prohibits landlords from evicting the, for not paying rent.

They’ve essentially tripled their lifestyle by not working

Inflation is rapidly encroaching from business owners increasing salaries in a bidding war.

It’s a shame to see the country going down the tubes. It’s going to be shadenfruedaliscious when the party stops and these woke folks have to face the reality of being self-sufficient. I hope to live to see it

Guess who is busy buying up all the farm land nationwide these sordid days, and guess for what purpose.

Max Keiser says that food prices are going up because of a bubble, not because
of inflation.
I am surprised by this.
Perhaps I did not hear him correctly.
If true, the bubble will burst, and bread will drop to $0.05/loaf, maybe.

I read awhile back that Gates is buying farmland, big time. For what purpose, I can imagine, since he thinks there are too many of us “useless eaters” in existence.

Excuse the slant in the article but it at least provides some figures.
