    It's a NYT story you fool. You are lucky I posted one here. The NYT probably doesn't get through Xi's great wall

    Just because you read them it does not mean you understood them. You know what Hyper inflesion means right? if not google it, Not only we dont have Hyper inflation we have very little inflation , so no comparison. Unless of course you consider .62% in 2020 hyperinflation.
    Neither were the women of the Weimar Republic selling nude pictures of them , well at least no more than usual. LOL
    Your post was simply a inept attempt to make some sort equivalency between todays economic situation and that of the Weimar Republic.
    Now if you were to compare the Hitler Nazi thugs that followed the Weimar republic to the trump Nazi thugs that stormed the capital I might agree with you.
    Anyway back to the subject at hand, It sounds like they make good money selling nude pictures, Do you think there is a market for my nude pictures?
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    ^ I lied. I've read 4 books on hyperinflation and hundreds of articles.

    Hyperinflation is not as simple as it is made out to be. All the focus is put on the blowoff top of hyperinflation. The actual hyperinflationary currency collapse is just the end of cycle.

    Before that event, there is a monetary induced crackup boom. The inflationary cycle in Germany actually started 9 years before 1923.

    The US's crackup boom started around 2009. And we haven't seen the conclusion yet. But it will come. It has to. There is no black magic central bank monetary expansion. The reason it always happens and people never learn from history , is because it feels like it works at the start. And the US since 2009 is no exception.

    Central bankers think they are throttling inflation. They think that they can just watch the CPI inflation rate , and pour in money until it risers. And throttle it back when it rises. It does not work that way.

    For example. The CPI sent the signal to the Argentine central bank that inflation wasn't a problem right before the currency blew

    The quote " those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it " could not possibly be more wrong, History never repeats itself, never has and never will. It is impossible for history to repeat itself because conditions are never the same.
    Though we all agree that present economic conditions are not great, they are not the same as the weimar republic or any other republic. and if one tries to make comparisons and avoid mistakes made then as receipt for improving conditions now, one is destined to fail miserably.

    Unemployed women have been selling sex since the dawn of man.

    The fact that it is digital is unremarkable.

    Does it really matter how many are doing it, there is a demand for it, and gullible men are willing to pay.

    Well if those ladies could make $64,000 selling nekkid selfies, a decent Thai lass could make a fortune over there. Still the land of opportunity.

    ^ I'm sure the Thai ladies are well onto it, very shrewd on how to sell themselves.

    Have you ever heard of the show Babylon Berlin ? Are you aware of the culture of the Weimar republic ?

    I think the point of the article is that most woman are may making wads of money with it.

    BS its not just the US, its many countries but Americans do seem to be very fond of such services.

    I know a woman in Thailand who is supposed to be going to marry an American, when restrictions are lifted for travel, she'd known him for two weeks and he sent her $10,000 as a down payment and has never met him, she now has to talk to him 3 hours a day and he sends her money often.

    I believe that you have read those book. The problem is, that reading is a completely new skill for you. It means that you are susceptible to the authors agenda.
    As far as understanding what you read, it might as well be Esperanto. Your critical thinking and fact checking skills are on a kindergarten level.

    I reckon Ant should get on this gravy train.

    He's already got a library of gym selfies, an adoring following by some of Thai forii's greatest stalke... followers. Easy money and Smeg & co get new pics to pleasure themselves to.

    Win/Win.

    Skidmarks assertion that desperate jobless women resorting to selling naked pics of themselves is somehow an indication of a booming economy is quite frankly stupid, but a typical skidmark brainfart.
