Which previous policies ? Surely not the ones that had gas at 1.oo a gal and food prices lower than ever. People actually got there lazy asses out of bed and went to work.
Umm. Remember the steel tariffs? And $1 gas had nothing to do with government policies; it was due to over supply and weak demand during the peak of the Covid shutdown.

Over the past decade or so the Us dollar has pretty much held its own.
Maybe you don't go to the grocery store, lumber yard or check out prices of tractors. Real world experience and common sense shows that a dollar will only buy about 70% of what it would a couple of years ago.

Looking
I’m certainly charging more for the beehives I build. Lumber is 2-3x as expensive as it as. I also hedge a little against further increases, because 2022 isn’t being made to sound much better. Luckily it’s a side gig, and being an airline pilot these days seems to be in demand. We will see how our negotiations turn out, being in this position.

Sorry, misunderstanding. Yes, prices are up. I should have said "the value of the dollar against foreign currencies.." Stuff costs more, but it's not, in general, a result of dollar vs. foreign currencies, which is really quite remarkable because of the huge deficit spending increases over the past five years.
One clear example is the insane run-up of lumber prices. That's mostly an in internal situation and has little or nothing to do with dollar vs. Euro, Yen, whatever..

Food for thought...

Year end gold prices;

2016 - $1151
2017 - $1296
2018 - $1281
2019 - $1524
2020 - $1895
2021 - $1828
Now - $1817

Hope the data is correct.

Ok, I was talking about what a dollar will buy now vs 2 years ago(value of the dollar). I don't care about pesos, yens or euros. I don't care about the price of tea in China.

Not sure about other areas but the RK's are still selling here in central FL. A few weeks back I was at RK getting horse feed and there wasn't a single RK55 or 37 on the lot. I asked the tractor guy that I deal with and he said that he had several on order some of which were already spoken for but he was having an issue getting them. Yesterday I was back there and there were 4 RK37's on the lot and 3 had sold signs on them. Didn't see any RK55's so not sure if they didn't get any or if they had already been purchased. At least sales seem to be going well around here. Glad to see that.

They've all gone up, not just RK. I bought a Mahindra 1626 new in early 2020 with a box blade and 20' trailer for 21k. I don't see anything close to that today.

Same around here. I've been by 3 RKs recently and they have between 0-2 tractors on the lot.
