Hyper Inflation comes by our basic loss of faith in our money. Inflation happens as the demand is greater than the supply. Right now the U S Government is indebted to about 100% of the GDP. We are about to go through a very bumpy financial ride.
Hyper Inflation is coming. The current Global Depression is squeezing property values, downward. Since September of 2008 the U S Gov't has been trying to stop the financial bleeding with massive bail-outs. A potential deflationary death spiral has American and World Banksters scared. Thre may be no stopping this complete collapse of the world's financial system.

Subject: Gold May be the Next Bubble
It's entirely possible that gold will be the next bubble. This is actually a bad thing since it means world governments are devaluing their currencies. I mentioned previously this could end badly (read hyperinflation, etc.) and I don't think John Q. Public American generally has a clue what's happening.
This was an interesting article on how the whole thing could unfold (substitute gold for oil and you might have an uhuh moment).
