Why the U.S. can't inflate its way out of debt [CNNMoney]

Thursday, March 11, 2010 - 12:55 PM
It's dawning on people that getting a handle on burgeoning U.S. debt will be a long and hard process. So if lawmakers can't agree on a credible plan, some have suggested that the country could just "inflate its way" out of its fiscal ditch.
I'm glad to read many are warning against trying to inflate our way out of the debt. High inflation can especially hurt savers and retirees.

Well, if the rates shoot up to around 15% as they did back in the early 1980s, then I am going to lock into the 30 year bonds as much as I can.
