Hey, the chicken little spent a decade or so warning us about "hyperinflation". When it became as plain as the noses on their own faces that that wasn't happening, they had to find a new bogeyman. Enter the "deflation doomsters".

Right before we plunge back to the stone age.

I thought we were headed towards hyperinflation back in 2009 when the massive deficit spending kicked in. As a child of the 70's, it has all the signs. Like usual, I was dead wrong. All I can do is continue to save and invest. It's a better outcome than the alternative... not saving and investing.

Woww, I have never seen so many ANTI CAPITALISTS as here. The Fed policies are disastrous and we will eventually hit a very nasty wall and will suffer an even more dizzying dystopia caused not by capitalism, but by deviating well off the road of capitalism.

For those who are willing to listen, the only way to protect yourself is don't get over indebted, save even though they are trying to encourage you not to, and don't put it in risky investments even though they are trying to force you to do so to get gains that don't justify the risk you take.

Until this is fixed true capitalists must be very cautious and do something to end this planned economy destruction before it obliterates capitalism. Only anti capitalists are in love with the current Fed policies and low interest rates.

Let capitalism function properly. The current Federal Reserve seems bent on extending a cycle out so long with so much low rates that it will cause massive debt accumulation that will create another Great Depression.

The OP talks like there is a purity to the free market that used to exist but doesn't since 2008.

I for one appreciate the government's efforts to maintain a strong stock market, mainly because 401ks and other "mundane" investments are the primary way most Americans save for retirement. If it's propped-up, so be it, otherwise every half generation looking to retire could be left holding a tin cup.

He should go ahead and buy his gold and silver, that's his way of navigating the ALWAYS treacherous free market.

Finally, there is nothing more common and less helpful in 2016 than whining, fear mongering and crying wolf.

Just tell us when you think that will happen. Remember some of us have long memories and the CD archives of your threads is extensive.

OP:

Stop spending time on doomster websites.

Adrenaline is a great drug, but the side effects (paranoia, anxiety, etc) can be problematic.
