All of the money printing will lead to higher inflation and a weaker currency. I believe there’s some very useful info discussed here for investors to read and learn about an asset class that has held up very well on a relative basis since the credit crisis began.

On January 20, 2009, the President inherited a $1.3 trillion budget deficit. The President has put forth a budget that will halve this deficit by the end of his first term, bring non-defense discretionary spending to its lowest level as a share of GDP since 1962.”

Make a note of this: Today is 9/21/09. I positively guarantee that if the President indeed does cut the deficit in half, we will experience a serious recession or a depression.

A growing economy requires money supply growth that exceeds population growth, inflation and the current account deficit. Cutting the deficit reduces the growth of money. For more on this, see: http://rodgermmitchell.wordpress.com/200 9/09/16/203/
