What is the chance of a currency lasting forever? Of course, the answer is 0. If governments are allowed to control the supply, it’s doomed to fail. Some fail rather quickly. Some last longer than most expect. There is never a way to predict the fall of a currency precisely but when it does fall, the devastation is massive. This can be prepared for simply by tru[e] diversification. Oddly, 99% of investors and speculators refuse to diversify. In the end, if mistakes are made, the repercussions will be felt.

Hyperinflation Can Happen Much Faster Than You Think – The Daily Reckoning
There’s no universally agreed-upon definition of hyperinflation. But one widely used benchmark says hyperinflation exists when prices increase 50% or more in a single month.

Fed Efforts to Stem Rises in Yields Back on the Table in 2021 – Variant Perception
Rising yields – driven by increasing inflation expectations after the Democrats’ unexpected clean sweep – are a risk for equities. If yields keep rising then the Fed will be forced to intervene to keep longer-term yields lower At the end of last year we discussed the likelihood of the US debt-limit exemption not being extended […]
U.S. Dollar has been weak against other currencies. Instead, measuring money against real goods, commodities, precious metals, etc. provides an interesting financial indicator. The financial system is seeing a massive uptick, massive flows of money, cash, debt into equities. More stimulus is on the way. This is in every form. Money printing from the central banks but also stimulus packages from the government itself. The expectation is that this will reflate the economy, pushing more money into stocks for those who have the disposable income.

Wake up to the suits and ties. They’re all lying to you. None are your friends. None wish to help you. Wolves in sheep clothing. More distractions than ever before. The magician always makes a spectacle to hide the trick.
UNEMPLOYMENT RATE DROPS TO 6.3%. Of course that’s the seasonally adjusted number they like to show. Of course that doesn’t include all of the people who have left the workforce, the underemployed, the people who have fallen off the statistic. But who cares, right? #unemployed
We live in a fantasy land. More money flowing in than ever before, IPO frenzy, housing skyrocketing. Euphoria never end well. The higher it goes the worse it will be. Slow and steady growth is much safer. #money #investments #debt
