LOW inflation? Dudes, the price of gold (in US $) has doubled in one year. That means that everything that we import is going to double in price, too, soon. As people figure out that the US is just printing more paper $, without anything more to back them (indeed, we have less worth than 1 year ago, due to wars and loss of manufacturing facilities) they will have no choice but to demand more US $ for everything that they sell us. If they do anything less, they will be losing money on their products. Nobody can afford to do that.

My county has 66,000 registered concealed carry people. That means out of 1 million in that county, 1 out of 15 people have a gun (or a permit to have one) on their person.
Kind of like a very real game russian roulette for the bad guys.

Gun ownership is up, crime rates are down. Funny how that works.... Gun Ownership Up, Crime Down

Your argument assumes there is another market available to sell your goods at a higher price. The reality is that there is no other market like the US and the prices will be whatever we can afford to pay. Without the US those products you speak of will sit in storage and rot.

While I suspect inflation will rear its ugly head, the above is wrong. There are several other factors that go into the price of gold and other commodities, but double, no.

But........I am not an economist. I am the 54% that make up 86% of my statistics. I just barefaced lie the rest of the time, without the benefit of bogus statistics.
