If Hyperinflation is coming, then we need to borrow much more

August 29, 2011

Just a quick note today.

5 year real rates are nearly -1%.  But this assumes the U.S. actually sees the inflation that’s expected by the markets.

If we get hyperinflation of 10% per month or so – thats 200%+ per year –  the real rates of interest will be far more negative and far better for the U.S. government.

    Art Shipman had a very interesting post today – The Greatest Scam of the 20th Century

    Friedman said the quantity of money relative to output IS similar to the price trend.

    In order to make “money relative to output” look like the price trend, you have to factor the price trend into the ratio. This is what Friedman did. It was a total scam. And everybody bought it.
