Blacktree,

To buy TIPS as an inflation hedge is to participate in a rigged game. Our dear Bureau of Economic Propaganda --the BLS-- has been fudging the CPI number for a long, long time. It will continue to do so in the future, because it can't afford otherwise. A far better inflation hedge is commodities.
