Inflation Insurance

Will the dollar????????s value drop to that of an Indian Rupee? August 29, 2011 I wrote the following in an Email to a friend: I looked at this little chart below showing how many units of a currency it costs to buy 1 ounce of silver:

Currency Units/Oz of Silver
U.S. Dollar 40.78
Australian Dollar 38.36
Brazillian Real 64.94
British Pound 24.78
Canadian Dollar 40.01
Chinese Yuan 260.04
Euro 28.07
Hong Kong Dollar 317.88
Indian Rupee 1,874.13
Japanese Yen 3,136.39
Mexican Peso 504.71
Russian Ruble 1,173.22
S. African Rand 286.68
Swiss Franc 33.45

With the deficit spending, monetary inflation used to buy treasury debt, huge debts that will be paid off in dollars, massive foreign exchange deficits, trillions of dollars in the hands of sovereign wealth funds and central banks, and massive increases in government spending coming because of continued wars, Obama care, and retiring boomers, I can????????t help but wonder how long it will be before the Federal Reserve Note drops to the value of the Ruble, the Rupee, or even the Yen.

When considering the ongoing deficit spending insanity of our country it????????s easy to imagine a day when it costs hundreds or even thousands of U.S. Dollars to buy an ounce of silver. We????????re already there when it comes to gold. At the end of the 19th century it cost about $20 to buy an ounce of gold. Recently we????????ve seen the price of gold as high as $1,900. In our lifetimes we may see the price of silver rise to that level simply because of monetary inflation.

It????????s good to have some inflation insurance in the form or gold and/or silver that you take physical delivery of.
