Comments on: Egypt, inflation and Japan debt crisis http://blogs.reuters.com/james-saft/2011/02/01/egypt-inflation-and-japan-debt-crisis/ Tue, 24 Mar 2015 16:54:45 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: timelyportfolio http://blogs.reuters.com/james-saft/2011/02/01/egypt-inflation-and-japan-debt-crisis/comment-page-1/#comment-490 Wed, 02 Feb 2011 18:05:21 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/jim-saft/?p=292#comment-490 inflation changes everything, and most likely represents the seed of destruction for poor monetary and fiscal policy. Its abscence since 1980 has allowed bad policy to continue far longer than it should in Japan, US, and emerging markets. This goes well with my post at http://timelyportfolio.blogspot.com. With the change, yen gets clobbered also.

Another varient on this theme concerns China. The threat of revolt or revolution in China could also change markets around the world.

The US is going to come out of this a loser. Our financial stability may be rocked to its core.

Most Asian cultures are xenophobic to an extreme (that’s a polite way of saying super bigot). I seriously doubt they are going to trade their Japanese bonds for foreign ones.
