Inflation is Anti-Evolution and Will Never Create Real Wealth.
“Since 1993, the Reserve Bank of Australia has targeted monetary policy toward an average inflation rate of between 2% and 3% a year over the medium term. This is considered sufficiently low that it will not distort economic decisions in the community.“The inflation ‘target’ provides discipline for monetary policy decision making in Australia, and serves as an anchor for private sector inflation expectations.” (Full article from Department of State and Regional Development NSW)
While we enjoy a moderate or low inflation rate there is at the other end of the scale Zimbabwe that has been through the worst hyperinflation to hit the country with 231 million percent inflation (Robert Mugabe … presiding over a regime in which inflation is running above 231 million per cent, people are starving and dying of cholera and aid is hard to get through.

Have you noticed prices rising? Of course you have.
How much has the price of tomatoes risen, the price of bread, milk and other dairy products?
How much has your house value risen, your car insurance or indeed your medical insurance risen in the last five years?
I read a decade ago that it would be rising health costs and the increase in ‘sickness’ and preventable disease that would ‘bankrupt countries’.
Sheryl Weldon, owner of Commerce Welding & Manufacturing Co., saw health-insurance payments increase to more than $800 monthly per employee from about $200 five years ago. With monthly revenue down 10% since December, Ms. Weldon stopped providing health coverage to employees, including one being treated for prostate cancer, for the first time in the 64-year-history of the Dallas sheet-metal company. (Wall Street Journal, 26 May 2009 )
One of the most successful Network Marketing firms, Herbalife International, now 30 years in business has not seen the incredible potential of its million plus distributors, and in Australia prices have increased some 30% in the past ten years, and in the USA around 10%. That may be much less than the majority of nutritional food products, however the potential has still not been realized because of the ignorance and selfishness of a few.
Inflation is anti-evolution, said Buckminster Fuller, and is the result of us not working together. With the context of “scarcity” pervading the media is it any wonder ‘working together’ hasn’t been an easy thing to do … until now, with the introduction of cooperative marketing at Your Healthy Planet.com.
What makes Your Healthy Planet.com different, is that it FOCUSES attention on the healthy, green and sustainable aspects of products and services … often ‘the solutions’ to yours or someone else’s problem.
“The failure of humans (in accurately gathering information, and solving problems for the benefit of all) means the function must be performed in local-Universe by other phenomena capable of reliably serving the information agglomerating and problem-solving function.”
“The eternal Universe show must go on.”
“When individuals shunt the comprehensive cosmic regeneration into exclusive advantaging of only their own survival and enjoyment and succeed in prolonged local short-circuiting of cosmic regenerativity, they disqualify the invention “human” as a reliable function of regenerative Universe.”
“They are just as irresponsible in the cosmic system as the company employees who pocket the cash register contents for their own account. This is cosmically true of a childless multimillionaire maneuvering himself into a position to make a big profit involving “hardheaded,” absolutely selfish decisions that will knowingly and legally deprive many others of survival necessities– “to hell with the next generation”–which deal will win him the applause of other powerfully rich individuals because it makes them feel more comfortable about their own summa cum selfishness.”
“If you ignorantly believe there’s not enough life support available on planet Earth for all humanity, then survival only of the fittest seems self-flatteringly to warrant magna-selfishness.”
“However, it is due only to humans’ born state of ignorance and the 99.99 percent invisibility of technological capabilities that they do not recognize the vast abundance of resources available to support all humanity at an omni-high standard of living.”
“We have now scientifically and incontrovertibly found that there is ample to support all humanity.”
“But humanity and its leaders have not yet learned so in sufficiently convincing degree to reorient world affairs in such a manner as to realize a sustainable high standard of living for all.“
The invisible realms of technology, when put to the beneficial advantage of everyone (rather than a select few) reduces prices and increaes our standard of living.
Imagine when technology is allowed to interact with the building industry.
When, through the benefit of “unseen technologies” the house you build in five years time is some 10% less expensive than todays ‘model’.
Not only less expensive to build, but it is also more efficient … your house is producing an income via it’s solar and wind generation technology that pays it’s own mortgage.
Now we are starting to generate some REAL WEALTH …
Real wealth, as defined by Buckminster Fuller was the “number of days forward you could continue to live (at your current standard of living) once you stop working.”
Here in Australia we are entering a debate to raise the retirement age. Programs are being developed to re-skill Australians in their late 50’s and early 60’s so they can continue to work and be active.
What Buckminster Fuller saw was possible was that individuals would take responsibility, independent of governments (he said governments as we know themn, would disappear) and you will see a problem that needs attention, and the funds and resourses would be available.
That is the future that we see Your Healthy Planet.com providing … owned by The Sustainable Children’s Fund, a not for profit holistic educational body and providing opportunities to network and work co-operatively while marketing it’s Ethical Marketplace.
Real wealth leads to a reduction in prices and an increase in standards of living around the world.
Let’s say no to inflation.
