Today gas cost $3.00 / Gallon (for example), tomorrow it could cost $5/gallon (for example)...

Savers LOSE, because inflation is reflected in the price of goods..

Money in bank is NOT acquiring value, but losing value, that means cash too, and daily too... Seems like every time I turn around stuff keeps going up in price! <<<This is reality today..

When I say that the value of money will soon change a lot, I'm referring to that which has not yet passed, and it's not a question of IF it will pass, but when... Many say 2012, some said 2015, some later, I'm not sure when we are going to have what's known as Hyper Inflation, but it is coming, of this I have 0 doubt...

Just like with those paywave cards, this will be exploited within a few years. People will find your phone, go buy gas, groceries and as much stuff from Best Buy, Target and Wal-Mart as they can before you shut it off.....which will be HARDER than just losing your wallet, since there are no payphones these days.

By the time your local police get around to 'tracking' the phone, it'll be the the trash or the side of the freeway. The occasional thief MIGHT be stupid and get caught but more often than not, you probably couldn't get a policeman to care enough to solve the case.
This is most unfortunate, and if it is indeed exploited, look at all that good money that will have went down the drain on this project...

Seems like this is a reoccurring nightmare in many different markets...

Just part of the conditioning of the sheeple to be chip implanted....... They know that things will be hacked so they come out with new ideas.

Problem= reaction= solution

Then comes chip implanting.

The zombies will be controlled. You will be assimilated.

I've been putting away some money in I series bonds. The rates are adjusted for inflation and they get some interest on top of that, so they are extremely safe. You also might try commodities if you are worried about inflation.

SICK! I have heard of something along these same lines before though, except instead of using a card you use your retina.
