The problem isn't that the goods are increasing in value or cost.  The problem is that the Obama Dollar is worth about fifty cents when compared to what once was the US Dollar.  You need twice as much coin to live at the same level that you once enjoyed.

So, based on this article itself, 3 of the five ways given are actually likely to backfire on you!  Well researched article!  The only investment choices given are ETF's?  Is this an advertisement?

What about investing something like D.E. Master Blenders which was spun off from Sara Lee?  Or one of the other coffee sellers?  Wheat's good?  How does that affect breadmakers, General Mills, etc?

So as I see it investors and the market are looking for another place to exploit. Every year there is a new excuse for rising prices but the real reason as stated in the article is a weak dollar. The game is rigged just like the MSM mouth piece Jim Kramer stated. How many ways can the rich make money off the the rest of us?  In that light we must do what ever we can to make our mark in life and live it to the fullest. Let those who value the dollar over life live in misery.
