With all that was said on this thread so far, my question is a simple one: How should one invest in order not to lose out given the coming inflation and other economic problems?

I have an idea on how to answer this, but hope to share the research work with others. My idea is to look at the inflationary history of the US to find out when in our past, if ever, we were in a similar position. What kind of investments performed well during that time? Why did these particular types of investments perform well? Do these same kinds of investments exist today? Do circumstances similar to those times exist today that would lead an analyst to believe that these investments would perform in a similar manner? If not, what other investments could perform in this way?

I welcome others opinions, as well as knowledge of this issue.
