Counter to many peoples view on this forum and /r/bitcoin, I found a notable economist who thinks the usd will DEFLATE instead of inflate. Take a look at his impressive Wikipedia page.

He has some great articles on the world economy and a fantastic 5 part series on the mid-term market outlook. In the series he goes over 'risk on' and 'risk off' strategies for different types of investing outlooks.

I also think he is very articulate in this interview on Bloomberg TV.

Considering so many people are forecasting a total meltdown or totally ignoring the problems at hand, I find it refreshing to hear someone talk about both sides of the equation.

The other topic on the collapse of the usd was popular and relevant, so I figured this might be worth discussion.

I am going to bed, so this will be my last post for the evening. I want to wake up tomorrow to find that you guys have hit $32!  Cheesy

P.S. I am still holding onto my silver, I don't trust the fedbank. I would rather hold deflating silver than an inflating usd.

I had to link it because I love the name. Seriously, that is the real name.

Pressure to increase the value of the dollar:

1) Other currencies failing

2) Debt clearing due to perceived risk increase.

I don't think it will be allowed go go on for long, though.

One point of view is that defaults cause destruction of money supply and new supply cannot be created because nobody wants to take any loans even at negative interest rates. This would be deflation.

Another school of thought is do not fight the fed, instead relax and enjoy yourself. This would be inflation.

Chances are, however, that there will be inflation and then deflation and then inflation again and so on until children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered (same for other continents too I suppose).

don't be so sure. 

it might be true if $200/barrel oil or $10/gal gas is sustainable or if ppl can't afford food.
