with assets there is a floor in price of homes, oil, and even preferred stocks that pay diviidends. no waythe market can you get dividends of 50% per year forever. but with inflation there is no ceiling in eternity. with so much gov't debt that has to be paid. inflation is the only way to pay it. no other way. taxes don't even pay the interest on the debt. all the taxes of the US can't even pay the interest on the debt.
