Someone used inflation to sneak into Grandmother's banking account and stole all the value of grandmother's life saving. weirdly, the number of dollars remains the same -- the value of the dollars is being stolen.
But at least we know who that someone is --- Obama & Co, and their inflation making policies.
The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.
