tao te ching, chapter fifteen

The old masters were deep, unfathomable, profound beyond understanding. Because they were unfathomable we can only describe their demeanor.

Cautious, as if crossing an icy stream. Alert, as if sensing danger. Respectful, like visiting guests. Yielding, like melting ice. Simple, like uncarved wood. Open, like beckoning valleys. Mysterious, like opaque pools.

Still the mind and the mud settles. Do nothing and action comes of itself.

One who embraces Tao has no desire for fulfillment. Not desiring fulfillment, he is finished with birth and death.

By money I assume you mean fiat currency in this case.

If earnings per share also inflate, would not the stonk be more valuable?

That's precisely the answer. Of course, some stocks only provide as much as a return as is taken from inflation. Whenever you're evaluating a security, you need to account for tax, premiums, and inflation.

If I'm understanding the question correctly, it should, but your buying power of that stock would effectively go down.

Yes, it is basically the first place the new money goes.

Pretty much. Current valuations are through the roof from a lot of capital flows, be it from overseas, additional retail investment, and money printing. Think of holding dollars as a completely value neutral investment in competition with your stonks.

You are still basing 'value' on the imaginary. Stop thinking in dollars.
