Rampant and rising inflation is a symptom of a paper currency at its death's bed.
Economic historian J. K. Galbraith once said A constant in the history of money is that every remedy is a reliable source of new abuse. No more fiddling of any kind can save the dollar from the dustbin of failed fiat currency. The "die is cast" and the wise among us have already begun securing and shielding their assets from the nascent financial calamity guaranteed to destroy the middle class and disrupt our way of life for years to come.
Debt based paper currency is a tool of its creator, favoring them at a cost to the user. Currency is a money substitute and thus a derivative of money. According to J.P. Morgan, banking baron from the early part of the 20th century, Money is Gold and Nothing Else.
Currency is the convenience of the banking cartels and used as a swindling tool which becomes fully evident in the final days of a currency as prices (quoted in the currency) become unstable. Inflation is rising prices in currency, however when prices are measured in gold (and silver) they remain stable. For example the price of crude oil in dollars is very unstable, as prices continue to rise, but prices measured in gold grams report stable prices that have remained the same, with only minor fluctuations, for generations .
Dollar purchasing power is falling and will continue to fall long term until abandoned as currency. Meanwhile, gold (and silver) maintain purchasing power and have done so for thousands of years. The price of oil in gold grams is roughy the same price today as in 1950.
Currency, a tool of its creator, is used as a means of control and theft - secretly transferring its purchasing power to the controllers and hidden from site in the rhetoric of rising prices facing the people.
Metals such as gold and silver (and a few others) preserve purchasing power and thus wealth as they become valuable assets in a portfolio.
Soon purchasing gold and silver priced in dollars will become impossible for most people, as the purchasing power of a currency experiencing hyper inflation drops quickly, substantially, and eventually the purchasing power is gone.
You can transfer dollars into gold and silver now and you can rollover your retirement plans into gold and silver too. Act soon.
