Are We Boardering On Hyper Inflation

Recommended Posts

From wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyper-inflation

Governments will often try to disguise the true rate of inflation through a variety of techniques. These can include the following:

Outright lying as to official statistics such as money supply, inflation or reserves.

Suppression of publication of money supply statistics, or inflation indices.

Price and wage controls. currently happenning in public sector pay deals

Forced savings schemes, designed to suck up excess liquidity. These savings schemes may be described as pensions schemes, emergency funds, war funds, or similar. currently happenning with Browns forced pension ideas

Adjusting the components of the Consumer Price Index, to remove those items whose prices are rising the fastest.

Also from wiki: (same page)

International Accounting Standard 29 describes four signs that an economy may be in hyperinflation:

1. The general population prefers to keep its wealth in non-monetary assets or in a relatively stable foreign currency. Amounts of local currency held are immediately invested to maintain purchasing power.

I take it that non-monetary assets include houses?
