2009 year of no inflation.

Commodities aren't reacting at all to the recent decline in the Dollar. A weaker dollar will only benefit the US economy in this case....

The USD may be the only thing that will rise during all this. It's the world reserve currency still as of now. People still view it as safe. I was worried about the dollar before because I figured people would laught at us with all our issues. But the whole WORLD is going through a decline and they are just doing as badly. I think people will view the USD as the flight to safety.

Nor are they going to anytime soon, and if they do start throwing money out the window the FED can easily eat up the monetary base to prevent inflation.
