    I don’t understand the quote. Things change. As of today it can’t happen, but the world is actively trying to displace the dollar as the reserve currency. If that happens, then who knows what could happen in the future. Predicting the fiture with certainty is a fools game

    Indeed. Except apparently it's a quote from some paper by Danish Statistical Society which later was misattributed to Yogi Berra.

    On the topic, I think developed markets are always more in danger of deflation than hyperinflation, simply by how the economy is structured. Modern technological advances make the deflationary pressures only harder.
