    This chart, which I used in the article, shows that individuals are still the largest holder of treasuries and foreigners are still (for now) the second largest holder. The chart shows that foreign holders are dropping off, and I said in the article that that would continue and eventually the Fed would be the second largest holder and at that point individuals will sell. This is the Treasury/ dollar collapse that is coming. I never suggested that the tapper didn't fail in 2019. So don't really see what you disagree with.

    The Fed is still the third largest holder of US debt. This chart shows that individuals are still the largest holder, followed by foreign investors. When the tapper fails, and the new trillion dollar package assures that it will, the fed will become the second largest holder. This is when the Treasury market and collapses.

    I know and am finding parents who agree with everything in this article and they are still marching their children off to indoctrination centers!? They believe their children will be smarter, more capable, happier and more successful without school, but they still feel compelled to send their children!?

    Yes, you would go back to the Civil War period if you were only looking at the US. In 100 Year Inflation May Now Be Upon Us, I'm looking at the collapse of the Mark exactly 100 years ago and briefly explain how this was set in motion by the creation of the Fed. The current US inflation is similar to Weimar by the degree of debt monetization (aka quantitative easing). A stronger comparison from a social and political perspective, is the inflation proceeding the French Revolution just over 200 years ago.

    Gold broke out of down trend on a technical basis Friday and is likely to rally into December with a chance to hit a new all time high as early as January. Possibility of a short squeeze in gold and silver still on the table. Given the short interest, a break out in gold could put some large bullion banks in trouble.

    Here is an organic approach to Covid19: Vulnerable individuals can stay home and wear masks and social distance if they choose. Others can bolster their immune system through diet and outdoor exercise and vitamins such as D, C and Zinc. Get immunity through casual contact with asymptomatic carriers. Life goes on as normal. Here's an inorganic approach: Try to force the world to get a leaky vaccine that is likely to create stronger variants. Lock down the economy. Give presidents and governors dictatorial powers. Paper over the loss of productive activity... Organicism is the philosophy to sort out and make sense of what we are experiencing right now. It is consistent with laissez faire. It may not save the world but it can save individual members of it.

    There is no fundamental disagreement here. From what I've read from the Mises Institute and the Foundation For Economic Education (both of which I've contributed to) there was a pretty straight line between inflation spiraling out of control in France in 1789 and heads rolling into buckets. "The elites" do panic when inflation gets away from them. They like inflation that regular people don't notice. They worry when regular people start to notice. As evidence for this argument, I'd say look at luxury underground bunker sales over the last two years. Hyperinflation has a way of reshuffling the deck. a blue collar tradesman can surpass a professional lawyer. A simpleton who just paid his bills and collected some silver and gold can come out better than a person who trusted his wealth to a financial advisor.

    Elites benefit from inflation, but they don't necessarily benefit from hyperinflation, which is a currency collapse. The French Revolution is one example where elites did not benefit from hyperinflation.

    Someone commenting on this article on an another forum suggested that "the elites" wanted and would benefit from hyperinflation and that only the "lower orders" would suffer. I reminded him that The French Revolution followed and was at least partially set off by hyperinflation (just over 200 years ago), so he should not assume that "the elites" would be immune from the affects here and now. The big take away from the article is that gold is performing as it did in Germany before the currency collapsed. The chart of gold v mark 1918 to 1921 and gold v dollar 2018 to 2021 are nearly identical. It's seen better in this version of the article.
