Alasdair Macleod: "The Dollar is on a Hyperinflationary Course"

Gold bug and Gold Money contributor Alasdair Macleod discusses inflation vs. deflation, and why the dollar price of gold is on a hyperinflationary course.

I recently posted an article for GoldMoney showing how US True Money Supply (TMS) appeared to be growing at a hyperbolic rate, and that gold was also on a hyperbolic course. The difference between hyperbolic and exponential is a hyperbola’s rate of growth increases with time, while exponential growth does not. Hyperbolic growth in the quantity of money ends with hyperinflation, while exponential growth can go on for ever. Both TMS and the dollar price of gold are pointing to a hyperinflationary outcome.
