    Where do you see the 30 year Treasury rate in say:

    1 year?

    5 years?

    10 years?

    Will inflation get out of control and make the bond market get the rates above 8-9%? Or will the economy do it's natural cycle and slow way down and make the long term rates see 3-4% again?

    What is your thinking?
  2. Yes. The Powers will lie about the inflation rate until everyone is choking on prices... but ultimately the "money pump" results in runaway inflation and sharply rising rates.
