A 1998 Ford Escort For $289 A Month For 84 Months??? – Inflation Is Completely Destroying Our Standard Of Living

By Michael Snyder

Inflation is a hidden tax on all of us. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t understand this. Most of them cheered when the federal government was handing out free checks as if they were candy. And most Americans fully approved of the Federal Reserve propping up our financial markets by flooding the system with obscene amounts of money. But now we are paying the price. Our money doesn’t go nearly as far as it once did, and the cost of living has become extremely oppressive.

When I heard that one woman had financed a 1998 Ford Escort for $289 a month for 84 months, I initially thought that there must be some mistake.

I knew that used car prices had risen to insane levels, but I never expected to see something like this…

During tax season, people are often using their returns to buy outrageous things. Normally, people will buy an older model of luxury car, which they usually end up taking a loss on. Other times, people price themselves out by buying a new car that is out of their normal budget. However, there is a woman who has gone viral from Facebook for buying a 1998 Ford Escort under a horrible deal. Not only is she paying over $200 a month for the car, she is paying on it for the next seven years.

Obviously, someone really took advantage of this woman, because a 1998 Ford Escort is not worth much.

But this is the day and age that we are living in. Twenty-five-year-old Ford Escorts are considered to be valuable assets, and financing of used vehicles is often stretched over 7 years so that poor Americans can afford to make the payments…

While she is spending less than $300 a month for her car, the car is already twenty-five years old. This lady has gone viral, because of the promo post, where she is making $289 monthly payments for the next 84 months, which is seven years.

The Federal Reserve has been aggressively hiking interest rates in a desperate attempt to get inflation under control, but it is not working…

The Fed pays particular attention to the Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) price index. The “Core PCE” price index (which excludes the volatile food and energy components) is its measuring stick for the 2% inflation target. Powell has been pointing at the services components of the PCE price index as a hotbed of inflation. And the PCE price index for January, released today by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, was a horror show on all counts.

Not only did all the relevant measures get a lot worse in January, but the prior three months, October through December, were revised higher – much like the CPI inflation readings a couple of weeks ago – showing substantially greater inflation momentum at the end of the year than originally shown. The whole thing throws a lot of cold water on the “disinflation” hoopla.

In particular, food inflation has gotten wildly out of control.

At this point, even Costco is charging ridiculous prices…

On Sunday, a Reddit post showcasing the new roast beef sandwich at a Costco location in Lynnwood, Washington, went viral because of the sandwich’s eye-popping asking price.

Costco wants customers to pay $9.99 for thinly sliced roast beef with relish, mayo/mustard blend, lettuce, cherry tomato and red onions on a roll.

While the 790-calorie sandwich looks good, Reddit users were astounded by the price tag — which is equivalent to a whole Costco pizza.

“10 dollars? Is it the same size as the pizza?” one user commented.

No matter how high the Fed hikes interest rates, food prices are going to continue to go up.

But higher rates are having an impact on employment. In fact, today another prominent tech company announced that it will be conducting layoffs…

Palantir confirmed on Monday that it’s cutting about 2% of its workforce as layoffs continue to hammer the tech industry.

“We believe our company is at an inflection point and to continue to evolve, we are making the tough choice of reducing teams in several areas,” the company said in an emailed statement. “While less than 2% of our workforce is impacted by these changes, these are incredibly painful decisions but the right ones for the company’s future.”

There is no more debate.

The economy is clearly getting worse.

In fact, a brand-new Fox News poll discovered that 78 percent of all Americans believe that “the economy is in only fair or poor condition”…

Fully 78% say the economy is in only fair or poor condition, mostly unchanged for the last year.

That’s how the economy remains the top issue, with 36% saying it’s the most important problem facing the country — and it’s the number one choice among Democrats, Republicans, and independents.

But what most people don’t understand is that this is just the very beginning of this new crisis.

Eventually, conditions will get a whole lot worse.

So I would encourage you to make preparations for the hard times that are coming, because a tremendous amount of pain is ahead of us.

Please plant a garden. Don't call it a victory garden, call it a survival garden.

About the Author: My name is Michael and my brand new book entitled “End Times” is now available on Amazon.com. In addition to my new book I have written six other books that are available on Amazon.com including “7 Year Apocalypse”, “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America”, “The Beginning Of The End”, and “Living A Life That Really Matters”. (#CommissionsEarned) When you purchase any of these books you help to support the work that I am doing, and one way that you can really help is by sending copies as gifts to family and friends. Time is short, and I need help getting these warnings into the hands of as many people as possible. I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe. I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article. The material contained in this article is for general information purposes only, and readers should consult licensed professionals before making any legal, business, financial or health decisions. I encourage you to follow me on social media on Facebook and Twitter, and any way that you can share these articles with others is definitely a great help. These are such troubled times, and people need hope.
