The following is an excerpt from the November 2010 issue of the Schaef Report. You can view the full report online at the Schaef Report web site.
Even the deflationists admit that the Fed can create hyperinflation if they successfully monetize all debts that could possibly default (both public and private), but they simply donâ€™t think the Fed will be successful in doing that. The inflationists think they will be successful in doing it. I see flaws in both these arguments.Â 1. TheÂ deflationists believe that a banking cartel that has been controlling moneyÂ and credit for the past 97 years will all of a sudden no longer be able to control money andÂ credit any longer,Â and 2. the inflationists actually believe that the Fed will succeed in doing something they set out to do. After all, even ifÂ their policies result in hyperinflation the Fed will see that as a much more positive thing than any kind ofÂ deflation because everyoneâ€™s 401ks and homeprices will go back up (not to mention eventual increases in income will help Americans pay off their excessive debts). Of course I have my own beliefs about what will happen, but what do I know? It all seems to hinge on whether the Fed stays in control and how aggressive they end up getting with their policies. That part of American history is yet to be written.
