Lumber prices😳

When you hear terms like "modern monetary theory" and "quantitative easing" you need to realize these are plays on the real problem. Debasement of the value of the currency. Like all Ponzi Schemes throughout history, our dollar is debt based and only works as debt increases. Yet as debt increases the value of the dollar decreases. This is what causes inflation, which you see as things costing more and packages getting smaller. Now I am not discounting supply and demand cycles as they play in to this, yet more dollars chasing fewer goods increases demand and thus prices. This is exactly how every empire in history fell. I could give you a 10 hour seminar on this, complete with charts and graphs. I could blame the past 20 Democratic administrations and be spot on, yet this holds exactly true for the past 20 Republican administrations and be just as spot on...

Go look at the real meaning of the story of the Wizard of Oz and the bankster behind the curtain and you will see how far this goes back...

So they’re still 53% higher?
I linked the wrong one. But in short, yes. I can agree with some raise in the market, lumber was long overdue. But the way it went up I don't agree with. It will never return to "normal".

For large contractor deals, yes. Consumer price at the counter has remained artificially high. Little man keeps getting screwed
Yup, article says it could take weeks for box stores to reflect.

Who else did you expect to get screwed?

Weeks, shit I bet it's months and months. the big box stores will ride a long drawn-out reduction to maximize profits. Since lowes and home depot control pretty much the bulk of the consumer market they'll indirectly work together to keep prices high.
