You are misinterpreting the articles explanation. An increase in the velocity of money (people spending not saving) increases inflation as supply can't keep up.

Saving reduces the velocity.

All fiat money systems have crashed, its a certainty, they all have a life depending on certain factors. The point in all of them is reached, where creating more just causes inflation. Its already happened, property has inflated, in fact property has hyper inflated. The debt to loan payback ratio stuffs up the system, at the moment they are handing out sub prime auto loans just to keep it going.26% are in default or around that figure .The Job market which is essential to pay back the debt, isn't 4.5% unemployment , its more like 24%....Its essential that they talk the Ponzi up for as long as possible, because they haven't got a clue on what to do when it implodes.

Saying all fiat money systems crash is no more true than saying all economies crash. Given a long enough time frame it may be true but that is hardly relavent.

Fiat money systems, if well run, are far more successful than any form of metal standard.

Yes but human nature being what it is, starts the decline in the fiat, then passes the mess on. Rome was the same, the coin was debased. If it can be corrupted unfortunately it will be.

The people who invest in treasury bonds on behalf of pension firms, investment companies and government are generally reasonably well educated.

Pretty sure they are aware of hyperinflation and recognise that it is an anomaly.


Periodic 'anomalies' aren't. They are planned. They know no matter how many zeros are added to the national debt, they just start over, reissue new "currency".

Dig that term, "Currency" Another innocuous term I particularly favor is "quantitative easing". Still another, "shrinkflation". When the banks cease to loan money except to each other and stop paying interest (in fact charge depositors points to 'hold' their money)...

The writing is on the wall.

Well said. Exactly as you say. Except in the end, they will not suffer, they have all the gold at that point, just issue new 'notes' and start again.

So I responded that they hold the mortgages and they can collect physically. I may be mistaken?

Secured bonds are seen as less risky than unsecured bonds, because investors are compensated at least somewhat for their investment in the [event of default]. Some types of secured bonds are mortgage bonds and equipment trust certificates. Secured bonds are collateralized by assets such as property, equipment or another income stream. For example, mortgage-backed securities (MBS) are backed by the titles to the borrowers’ houses and by the income stream from mortgage payments. If the issuer does not make timely interest and principal payments, investors have rights to the underlying assets as repayment
