It doesnjt matter how much money they print, it all adds up to the same amount: whatever it is that backs that PAPER. (In our case, gold) if you ever wondered why the dollar has lost 95% of its value since 1913 it's because they keep printing more. And who is it that suffers? Those who were forced by the government to give up their real world assets. (In our case, the American people who had their gold confiscated by the government in order to give the dollar value) I hate to break it to you but that's what people mean when they inflation. And FYI, the US no longer prints money, our debt is now going to the Federal Reserve. Want proof? Grab an old bill and compare it to a new bill (the ones with all the security features).
