Will Hyperinflation Follow Inflation, or Will Deflation Win Out?

in Economic Updates

Hyperinflation is the dramatic loss of value of a currency due to the severe inflation of that currency.  There’s no question that we have seen massive inflation as correctly defined (the increase in the quantity of currency), but we are now seeing many signs of dramatic price inflation while seeing deflation in areas such as real estate.  We’re continuing a  series of videos which can be found here.

Today, we’ll look at factors of inflation which could lead to hyperinflation such as:  1)  Food prices continue to surge which lately can be especially seen in corn, wheat, and soybean prices, as well as the number of people that have now noticed that their food bill is a much larger percentage of their income,  2)  There’s an interesting question about whether or not the Federal Reserve planted an article in the Wall Street Journal in order to bomb the stock market, which causes deflation in the stock market (a crash) for the express purpose of having reason to ignite QE3 (the key to hyperinflation),  3)  The Federal Reserve is once again bailing out Europe.  It’s a good thing they have so much money!  These and more in the video below…

Love your point about President Obama warning about default and then being upset when the USA was downgraded. Kind of a Duh! moment.

Thanks Hal! Yeah, I haven’t heard anyone nationally make that point and it’s bizarre.

Bizarre to you and me, Wes, but anymore I have to admit that politics in DC are pretty much described that way.

Reminds me frequently of the phrase, “Power corrupts. Absolute Power corrupts, absolutely.” Which is one reason I am often concerned for new people in politics that we try to get behind and send to that city. And it’s another reason I’m personally considering more and more some of the suggestions for term limits and the value they may hold on keeping people out of trouble.
