Does it have a penis?

Mr. Panzner, I confess to not having read your book yet (I will!), but I'm puzzled by your dollar-up, stocks-down forecast. Is the endgame Federal default rather than inflation in your view? I'm still diversified across stocks (foreign and domestic), cash (AUD and USD), and gold and miners, and I'm even considering buying an overpriced house because I think they're going to print their way out of this mess. Bonds are a disaster I think, and taking out a 30-year fixed mortgage is a great way to short Treasuries. W.C.

Interesting discussion. I've been coming around the the view that the Chinese don't care about a future dollar collapse. They are using the strong U.S. consumer to finance the development of a domestic middle class, a huge infrastructure build-out, and stockpiles of commodities as high as they can pile them. If they get all that from propping up the dollar now, do they really care if a few trillion dollars are devalued five years from now? Seems to me watching $4 trillion implode is all part of the plan.

Teenagers playing with nukes always makes me think of the Federal Reserve. Bernanke and crew aren't all that young, but the comparison still seems really appropriate for some reason.

I guess that explains why businesses are leaving the state and illegal aliens are streaming in.
