New Hyperinflation Hedge Fund Launched

Recommended Posts

Inflation Risk

“There is certainly talk about inflation but people might think of inflation at 5 percent or 6 percent,†Zimbabwean-born Haworth said. “We’re talking 5, 10, 15, 20 percent or more.â€

Investor Marc Faber said on May 27 he was “100 percent sure†that U.S. prices may increase at rates “close to†Zimbabwe’s gains, and the U.S. economy will enter “hyperinflation†because the Federal Reserve will be reluctant to raise interest rates. Zimbabwe’s inflation rate reached 231 million percent in July, the last annual rate published by the statistics office.

Universa Investments LP, the hedge-fund firm advised by “Black Swan†author Nassim Taleb, is also adding a strategy betting that stimulus efforts won’t prevent deflation or could result in hyperinflation.

Yeah sure we are going to hit hyperinflation, if anyone did think this was going to happen you would buy a house now on LT fixed and wait till your mortgage was the same amount as a pint of milk.

You can be 100% sure that anything might happen surely. Amazing how these really intelligent people can say such stupid things.

cgnao was 100% gauranteed hyperinflation, he may well be right. Im sure he will be back when the hyper-inflation starts. It looks like he is not the only one to see inflation as an outcome.
