Subject: What to do during Inflation? Date: 9/21/2009 2:41 PM

Hi everyone,

There is talk about the possibility of world wide inflation and I believe it because I am a believer in cyclical events in the world. With so much stimulus going on everywhere in the world, inflation is bound to get out of hand and trigger increases in interest rates to curb it.

I'd like to know what an active investor is to do during those times? Getting out of the USD is definitely a possibility for me and I would consider doing it because I don't live in the US. That would mean that I would need to stop trading US stocks though. Any idea what will happen to the stock market? Prices go up, interest goes up, corporations won't employ as many people as it costs too much to borrow money, and the world economy hits a brick wall again?

Hope we can have a lively discussion on this issue.

Thanks

2Rip
