Plunger,Forgive my ignorance.Where should an investor's money be if we knew with certainty that the dollar is deflating?Foreign currency, foreign stocks?Precious metals?Commodities?Shorts and shortside of options?If I live in the US and all my money is spent here do I really care if the dollar is deflated and I am fully invested? The value I have invested doesn't change relative to anything I can buy here, i.e. I rise and fall with the tides of my currency. Is that sophistry?One thing I do understand is that weakening dollar hurts debtors and helps lendors, effectively increasing their interest return.I really wish I had taken a macro-economics course in school. Only did the intro and micro.qaddy
