How much money is printed impacts distribution. For example, when your on a fixed income and your money can't buy what it did yesterday, you have been made poorer in comparison to someone who will get a raise with inflation. A guy who retired after serving 30 years in the military loses money compared to a guy who just owns a bunch of stock that increases its dividend with with inflation.
