遠在柯羅拉多州春田市的一個舊房，室內到處是塗鴉 ，裝璜陣舊不堪，要價六十萬， 還有人搶著要用現金支付，使得经紀人不敢相信。
All Prices Are Going Up
In Colorado Springs, Colorado, a dilapidated house full of dirt with profane graffiti on almost every wall has the asking price of $600,000. The real estate salesman was very surprised that some people still want to buy it with cash money.

After the federal relief bill was passed, many people spent their money and all the basic goods went up at least twenty percent.
