Rising Inflation: People Realizing the Government Figures Aren’t Accurate

Editor's Note:

Do you think that the federal government statistics are accurate?

Dr.Paul Craig Roberts has written extensively on this.  I refer you to his website, www.paulcraigroberts.org.  

Basically in the Clinton administration they changed the way we calculated unemployment (which led to underreporting) and inflation the government had used for over 100 years.  If you want to know the numbers based on the historical way inflation was calculated for over 100 years based upon today's data, see the website www.shadowstats.com of economist John Williams.

The truth is inflation is accelerating.  Whether this country follows what happened to the German Republic after WWI remains to be seen.  

What we also know wages are not increasing at a rate to offset the inflation.  (Instead, when inflation rises it seems that some employers cut payroll.)

Look below at how food prices have been increasing and what others are reporting.  Judge things by what you are experiencing.  For example at the grocery store you are seeing price increases in three ways:  (1) direct price increase; (2) decreasing quantity for the same or slightly higher price and (3) reformulation with cheaper ingredients and fillers.

Food prices are a faster rising sector due to many factors, i.e., the drought, 20% of our food being imported, the devaluation of the dollar, etc.

You can mitigate significantly the food inflation by locking in your prices with freeze dried and dehydrated foods.  I encourage you to consider storing Thrive because it really has the best quality all around among the freeze dried food companies.

Inflation where it matters: Close to 50 percent of Americans indicate spending more on groceries and fuel this summer. Nearly one third indicate more spending on rent and mortgage payments

By myfoodbudget360.com

The stock market continues to move upwards ambivalent to economic indicators and the reality that inflation is permeating throughout our economy. The Fed continues to point at CPI as evidence that inflation remains subdued and this gives them the motivation to move forward with monetary policies that we have never embarked upon. We are already getting a taste of the bigger consequences including a growing low wage labor force. A recent Gallup survey found that Americans are spending more money on items that actually matter and items that consume a large portion of a household’s budget. This is key here in understanding the nature of inflation. Items like housing, healthcare, food, and energy make up a large portion of spending. Yet the Fed looks at other items that consume a small part of a household’s budget and balance out the overall picture. What you get is a massive understating of inflation and a stock market heavily juiced on easy money. Large pools of money are chasing real assets and crowding out regular Americans from the market.

Where inflation matters

It is interesting to see how people react to a constant feed of distorted information. The message is clear and it is one that is underplaying inflation. The tone set by the Fed is one in which monetary easing should continue to go on because inflation is simply not happening in the real economy. This could not be further from the truth.

Looking at the Gallup survey, you can find that Americans are spending more on the items that already consume a large part of their budgets:

Food Inflation, Now Wood Food Fillers

Food Inflation, Now Wood Food Fillers:  It’s not just Your Health.  When Does it Become Misrepresentation/Food Fraud?

As you know I get very “worked up” about knowing what is in my food:  Is it GMO? Does it contain MSG? Hidden Msg? Aspartame?  What is the food formula or food ingredients?  Is it what I call “Chemical Food”?

I wrote about Food Fraud last year that many seafood are not what they are represented to be.

But what if they reformulate, do not tell you, but have a small ingredients label on the product and don’t translate the “foodese” (or food chemical language, akin to my profession having legalese)?

Do you think that this is misrepresentation or just caveat emptor (“buyer beware”)? 

Is it ethical conduct by the food industry?  (Note:  Sometimes things can be “legal” but that does NOT mean that it is “ethical”.)

Isn’t it a sad state of affairs that when you go grocery store shopping, week after week, that the situation is getting so out of hand (increasing probably more than we realize) that you just can’t trust that the product is still the same but have to read each item and each label every visit? If you think grocery stores are the only ones that do this, think again.  Restaurant chains, including the fast food industry, has wood fillers in their products.

Why are we supporting this kind system with our dollars?

This is one of the reasons that I buy extremely little from the traditional grocery stores and use Thrive.  But if you don’t use Thrive, why don’t you find a food co-op or a local farmer and buy as much of your food from them?

The point is GET OUT OF THE FOOD PROCESSING DISTRIBUTION CHAIN!!!!  It’s become more of a big business food purchase and supply chain than it is a consumer market or service.

How much do they really care about you?  The Grocery Manufacturer’s Association fights tooth and nail to keep you from knowing what their members have put in your food.  If they had healthy products, they would not care if you knew.  In fact, they would spend money conducting public information campaigns to tell you what is in your food.

Instead, they press ahead using dirty tactics, i.e., Washington State and California food labeling referendum, trying to discourage you from knowing what is in your food.

It’s sick.  And we consumers must vote with our dollars and get out of this system ASAP!

 

How Fast Food Providers Beat Inflation – Add Wood Pulp To Burgers

By Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge.com

Who knew wood could taste this good. QZ.com/Photo Reuters/Molly Riley

On Monday, Quartz published an article by Devin Cohen titled, There is a Secret Ingredient in Your Burgers: Wood Pulp. Given the headline and people’s already present suspicion regarding all of the shady and potentially dangerous ingredients hidden in food items, the article gained a lot of traction. In subsequent days, most journalists and bloggers have focused on the dangers of this additive (unclear) and whether or not it is pervasive throughout the food chain as opposed to just fast food (it appears to be).

The one angle that has not been explored as much is the overall trend. Let’s go ahead and assume that wood pulp is a safe thing to consume, it certainly seems to have no nutritional value whatsoever. So why are companies inserting it into food items? To mask inflation and earn more profits most likely. This was a major theme I focused on last year in a series of pieces on stealth inflation and food fraud, a couple of which can be read below:

New Study Shows 59% of “Tuna” Sold in the U.S. Isn’t Tuna

New Study Shows: Food Fraud Soared 60% Last Year

The Quartz article notes that:

There may be more fiber in your food than you realized. Burger King, McDonald’s and other fast food companies list in the ingredients of several of their foods, microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) or “powdered cellulose” as components of their menu items. Or, in plain English, wood pulp.

The emulsion-stabilizing, cling-improving, anti-caking substance operates under multiple aliases, ranging from powdered cellulose to cellulose powder to methylcellulose to cellulose gum. The entrance of this non-absorbable fiber into fast food ingredients has been stealthy, yet widespread: The compound can now be found in buns, cheeses, sauces, cakes, shakes, rolls, fries, onion rings, smoothies, meats—basically everything.

The cost effectiveness of this filler has pushed many chains to use progressively less chicken in their “chicken” and cream in their “ice cream.”

This is the part that really interests me. When did these companies first introduce this substance into their products and what is the growth trend? My guess is that as food costs have risen, the proportion of non-nutritonal fillers has increased substantially. That said, I’d like to see some data and I haven’t yet.

My big takeaway here is the same as last year’s when I first started writing about the trend. As the cost of food continues to rise, the cost of not paying attention to what you are eating rises exponentially. Companies will continue to try to mask inflation by shrinking package sizes, and when that is no longer possible, increasingly inserting empty fillers (or worse) into their products.

Food Inflation: Higher Prices Don’t Slow Down for the 4th of July Holiday

The Cost Of Your July 4th Burger Has Never Been Higher

By Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge.com

Tomorrow, Americans will celebrate their independence from an over-taxing tyrant by eating and drinking to excess – and rightly so. However, what many will find as they pile into their friendly local grocer (Costco), is that the price of the July 4th smorgasbord has never (ever) been higher (as perhaps, just perhaps, another tyrannical entity – the Fed – has taxed them in a much more pernicious manner). Ground beef burgers have never been more expensive (+16.5% from last year)… and nor has white bread, American cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, ice cream, and chips

Your July 4th Burger has never been more expensive… (up 16.5% from last year!!)

(wondering what the asterisks are – at significant inflection points in the price? Blue is Greenspan unleashing his dot-com bubble rescue plan and Red is Bernanke beginning his save-the-rich printing press plan to rescue Main Street from the banking crisis)

But it’s not just Burgers… Bloomberg has compiled ….  Read More Here

Inflation Rate Is Higher Than You Think

Note:  There has been ongoing distortions by the federal government in reporting what the real inflation rate is.

In a civil case if you had such distortion about numbers in a contract, there would be a cause of action for misrepresentation or fraud.

Inflation?  You Only Need to Look at Food, Water, Gas, Electricity and Everything Else

By Michael Snyder of the Economic Collapse Blog

Have you noticed that prices are going up rapidly?  If so, you are certainly not alone.  But Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, the Obama administration and the mainstream media would have us believe that inflation is completely under control and exactly where it should be.  Perhaps if the highly manipulated numbers that they quote us were real, everything would be fine.  But of course the way that the inflation rate is calculated has been changed more than 20 times since the 1970s, and at this point it bears so little relation to reality that it is essentially meaningless.  Anyone that has to regularly pay for food, water, gas, electricity or anything else knows that inflation is too high.  In fact, if inflation was calculated the same way that it was back in 1980, the inflation rate would be close to 10 percent right now.

Thrive is Premium, Healthy Freeze Dried Food.

After battling multiple health issues (see “About Me”) and seeking GMO free (genetically modified organisms) foods for groceries and food storage, I came across Thrive as a solution to my food and nutrition needs. It helps protect and build my immune system and reduce allergies. There’s a growing body of medical research that GMOs, MSG, “hidden MSG”, and aspartame may be adversely affecting our health (see “Healthier than the Grocery Store”). GMOs have been linked to altering DNA, increasing allergies and adversing affecting our immune system. Studies of rats eating a GMO diet showed a variety of adverse effects on them, including, but not limited to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, infertility, organ failure, etc. MSG and aspartame have also been negatively linked to the same or similar adverse health effects (see Allergens & Reactives”).

WHY THRIVE FOODS?

WHY THRIVE FOODS?

 

 

I get asked this question many times about Thrive Foods!  The answer is simple:  Overall it is the best choice for quality and value!  It’s a win-win for the consumer!

These are just a few of the many good reasons to switch to Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) food products:

HEALTH

Our foods are healthier than the foods offered at the traditional grocery stores as they are not dominated with GMOs, MSG, and Aspartame, ingredients or processes which either have not been fully tested with long term studies by independent scientists.  At best GMOs, MSG and Aspartame are controversial and highly debated within the scientific community.  Are you or your family interested in being part of an ongoing experiment as many claim these growing methods and additives are?  See our page Healthier Than The Grocery Store for more information.

SAVE  MONEY

Food prices are skyrocketing, whether from companies changing their ingredients to cheaper ones, substituting ingredients, reducing the quantity, or just increasing the price.  Thrive Foods, because of their long term storage (many 25 or more years) and time to eat our foods once opened (usually 1 to 2 years) allows you to lock in lower prices as an offset to inflation, including potential upcoming hyperinflation.

Moreover, Thrive Life also offers you price stability that the grocery stores, whether those stressing whole foods or the traditional grocery store are unlikely to have.  The company adjusts it price schedule 4 times a year (for each season).  I’ve even seen our regular prices on food items go down.  Ask youself how often that happens at the grocery store these days?  To learn more about how we are cheaper, visit the page  Cheaper Than The Grocery Store.

KNOW WHAT’S IN YOUR FOOD

As you know millions of consumers want more information on their food labels to indicate whether a food product is genetically modified.  There was a knock-down fight of David and Goliath in California with the November 2012 referendum about whether we could get pro-consumer food labeling.  Unfortunately the last 40 days before the vote, Monsanto, Dow Chemical, Syngenta, Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Co and other minions heavily engaged in shoveling GMOs into your food supply (and believe with their corporate practices that you are NOT entitled to know whether GMOs are in your food) won Round 1 because they poured millions into their campaign.  (Ask yourself:  If GMOs are so good then why don’t they want you to know that one or more ingredients in a product is genetically modified?)

Consumers during these challenging times did not have the financial means to offset these multinational corporations.

So battle may have been lost but the war is far from over.  The “genie” is out of the bottle.  That “bloodbath” caused more consumers to learn about the GMO issues not just inside but outside of California.

Before this referendum Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) was already providing potential customers information on whether their food products contained GMOs.  In fact they voluntarily give customers more information than the law requires.  Learn why this is important by reading my page:  “Natural” or “All Natural” Misleading Labels.

CATERS TO THOSE WITH HEALTH ISSUES & FOOD ALLERGIES

When I was growing up it was rare to hear that anyone had a food allergy, and even rarer to hear that a child had a food allergy.  Now, there is a dramatic increase in the number of food allergies not just for adults but of children.  Learn more about this from my page Allergens and Reactives.

THE BEST ONLINE FOOD GROCERY STORE, PERIOD.

Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) is providing you with an ever expanding number of whole foods, sauces and seasonings.  It really is a high quality online grocery store.  Look at our offerings:  Freeze Dried Grocery Store.  Why battle the long lines, be exposed to the end counter high leader product placements, the time spent, and the gas you burn going between grocery stores.  Thrive Foods are a online shopping service that is a one stop shopping experience that will save you not only time, but money.

Political Cartoon Captures What We're Facing in 2013

Political Cartoon Captures What We’re Facing in 2013

With food inflation setting to soar in 2016, saving money on your grocery bill is important.  I’ve seen figures reported groceries used to make up 6% of our monthly budget.  As of 2013 Max Keiser, an economic journalist, reported in the U.S. groceries rose on average to 16% of a family’s monthly income.

Two ways that you can significantly lower your grocery bill while simultaneously eating better food than is offered at the traditional grocery store (i.e., non-gmo, no msg, no hidden msg, no aspartame), is using Thrive’s Unadvertised Specials and the Q Club.

Since unadvertised specials, which can save up to 45% off of the retail price, are NOT published on the Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) website, then to receive these you must have a relationship with a Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) Consultant.  The consultant sends these to you via email, newsletter and/or has them on their website password protected.  These are the distribution requirements by Thrive Life corporate office.

How Survive-Thrive.Us Distributes Unadvertised Specials to Potential Customers:

1.    We require all customers or potential customers to sign up for our Email Newsletter.  Each month around the 2nd to the 5th day, we send out our newsletter.

2.    Within the newsletter there will be a link to the current unadvertised specials.  All unadvertised specials are subject to being discontinued at any time.

3.    Since unadvertised specials fluctuate how often that they are updated and to keep down the number of emails sent, we also post on the website, password protected, a copy of the current unadvertised specials.  So before purchasing you should check on the website to see if it has been updated.

4.    The website copy is password protected.  All customers are given the password.  It is subject to being periodically changed for security reasons.  If a customer loses or forgets the password, then please email me at thrive@northstate.net and I will resend the current password.

5.      Your information is not shared or sold by me.  Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) likewise does not share or sell your information.

Who Can Join Our Email Newsletter:

1.    Anyone who is not already signed up for the Q Club under a consultant.  (Exception:  Those who are a Q Club customer of a Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team member are allowed to sign up to the newsletter.  Write me first at thrive@northstate.net giving me your name so I can verify whether your consultant is on the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.)

2.    If you have purchased from another consultant, but are not enrolled as a Q Club customer, and you feel that the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry better meets your needs, then you will receive the newsletter if you decide to become our customer.  This means that you:

a.    Notify the consultant that you want to be taken off of their email list, newsletter, etc.

b.    Agree that the Survive-Thrive.Us newsletter and other communications are proprietary and will not share them with a non-ministry consultant.  We go to great lengths to minimize any potential conflict of interest and mitigate any risks of inadvertent copyright violations for the benefit of everyone.

c.    Should you decide at some point that you wish to discontinue being a Survive-Thrive.Us ministry customer, then you notify us in writing to take you off all communication lists.  We will quickly comply with your wishes.

 When You Become Our Customer, Then You Give Us Permission:

1.    Send you our newsletter, special sales or important food news.

You will be added to our email database hosted currently by Constant Contact.

We are conservative in sending out emails and other communications.  We realize it is a privilege and respect the trust you have given.

2.    Add your name to our Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) customer database.  This will create your login ID and issue a temporary password so you can shop at your convenience.

3.    Enroll you automatically (as long as you are an active customer) in periodical contests and giveaways.

4.    Verify with Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) that you qualify to be a customer and eligible to receive our Email Newsletter, contests and giveaway prizes.

5.    Verify with Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) your consultant history so that if you have been associated with a Survive-Thrive ministry team consultant your account stays with them. 

Survive-Thrive.Us and its ministry team members have a team approach and work closely together on many projects.  We have an agreement we do not take customers from each other.  Therefore, when we are entering your customer information into the Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) database, if you are already in the database, then we will need to take steps not to break our agreement. 

Please note if you are associated with a ministry team consultant you are eligible to join this website’s newsletter.

 Who Is Not Eligible to Become a Customer or Join Our Email Newsletter:

1.    A Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

2.    A family member of a Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

3.    An individual who resides in the household of a Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

4.    An individual who has a Q Club account with a Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

If you have any questions about any of the above policies, then please send me an email at thrive@northstate.net.  If you are uncertain as to whether you are associated with another consultant, or whether you have a Q Club account, then write me.  I will research the matter and share with you the results.
