    Jack Dorsey says ‘hyperinflation’ will happen soon

    It’s one thing to call for faster inflation, but it may be surprising to some that Dorsey used the word hyperinflation, a condition of rapidly rising prices that can ruin currencies and bring down whole economies.

  2. US vs Turkey
    (note left axis for Turkey inflation)

    This is not hyperinflation lol

    Not surprising. Among the Earth's nearly eight billion people there is bound to be millions of fools.

  6. Yeah. No. Where is his rationale?

    Hyperinflation is IMO conditional on a complete collapse of manufacturing and supply chains so that very little demand can be met.

    One thing I learnt (after reflecting on my own failed attempts at predicting doom through the years) is that doomsaying feels very good, because you think you're smarter than everyone else.

    Paul tudor jones has said the same thing

    He said it's time to double down on inflation hedges...and also that inflation is the biggest danger.

    What does this look like on the chart and what does it mean? The last, most euphoric stage / blowoff top, IMO.

    so now we take this guy serious?

    Not that I disagree completely (inflation is a result of printing), but I'm sure his kind had no trouble greasing palms to pass the CARES act and related bailouts.
