1. You still have to pay capital gains taxes.  A short-term capital gain regardless of how long you hold it.

2.  All the currencies he mentions have inflated too.

Canadian dollars  >1000% since 1971
Australian dollars >1000% since 1971
Euros >100% since 1998
Mexican Pesos - no data but sure it is up
Swiss Francs  >300% since 1971
British Pounds > 600% since 1971
Swedish Krona - no data but like all governments it is up

But you get the point, government uses currency inflation as a means to tax since it is hidden and there is generally about a 4 year lag before the price inflation hits. 

The best stimulus you can give your country is a deflation rebate, balanced budgets and surpluses.

Mexican Pesos - no data but sure it is up

Yes, regardless with popular belief we are very tidy with information. Tongue
http://www.banxico.org.mx/PortalesEspecializados/inflacion/inflacion.html
We even have an easy to use calculator. Cheesy
http://www.banxico.org.mx/polmoneinflacion/servicios/calcDeInflacion/calcDeInflac.html

Which ends up being 586,864.65% in 40 years, from march 1971 to march 2011, with an average monthly inflation of 1.82%.
Note: The Mexican Peso lost 3 zeros in 1991. Wink
