It looks to me like there will be no escaping the pain. Either we suffer through a bad recession, or we get roaring inflation. I would just as soon Gentle Ben stopping goosing the money supply and let interest rates settle at inflation adjusted real rates of return. Let Hank and company come up with something. I really liked what Hank had to say the other day. He made some points that impressed me. He seems to be a smart guy and not in a panic, like Gentle Ben. My fear is that this is the 70's all over again. The fed will goose it and then stomp on the brakes, and then goose it, and then stomp on the brakes, and .... Anybody got some ideas? Can we avoid both inflation and recession.
