I was on the Falling Knives board and saw mungofitch write the following:


I think the TIPS yield curve is suggesting that people are expecting material inflation for a few years, and little to none thereafter.

If true, is there anything you can do to capitalize on a few years of inflation? It has been so long since we've had anything other than low or declining inflation it is hard to remember :)

Would annuity payouts increase during higher inflation and make them look "less bad" if the inflation was only short term?

I suppose buying things that are interest rate sensitive during the period of higher inflation would pay off in the long run if low inflation returned.
