Shadow Stat’s John Williams: Fed’s QE to Trigger Start of Hyperinflation by 2014

Economist John Williams says the latest round of “open-ended” QE has set the table for a global “dollar sell-off” and “hyperinflation” no later than 2014.  Williams says, “There’s no way the consumer can fuel the economic recovery, and there is no way we’re going to see one in the near future. The Treasury is going to have funding problems, and that means the deficit gets a lot worse.”

With the recent talk that the Fed might increase the money printing Williams charges, “The Fed’s primary concern is to keep the banking system afloat, and they’re not doing so well with that.”  Williams contends there is 12 trillion in liquid dollar assets held outside the U.S.  and states it is only a matter of time before all the Fed money printing will “trigger a sell-off . . . and that will provide the early start of the hyperinflation.”  You think the U.S. is better off today than it was in the last meltdown?  Not according to Williams, he thinks, “. . . things have gotten a lot worse.”  Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with John Williams of Shadowstats.com.

  1. Hyperinflation is going to happen sooner than later, long before 2014 IMO Keep Stacking

      I am totally with you brother. And they will blame it on Romney to boot!
      Hyperinflation can be set off by any of a number of world events that are
      heating up as I write this. The Federal Reserve is the biggest enemy of
      America and all the Central bank related countries of the world.

  2. Marchas it’s good to hear your voice again.   Inflation will probably start a hard ramp upwards this last quarter of 2012, getting a serious tail wind in 2013.  The price bounces we see at the store are now more than a few pennies a pound or package. Some packaged items are performing the David Copperfield incredible shrinking act as well.
    Between the drought and food shortages/price increases we see daily coupled with the increasing velocity of money that will start making the rounds next year it would not surprise me to see a real, not BLSBS, inflation rate of 10-12% or higher. In just the last 4 years the food and fuel inflation rate of 10 top consumables has come to collective increases ranging from 20-60% in those four short years.
      It still amazes me to see the silver price rotating back down to the low $30′s, offering us another gift of inflation killing precious metals.  The only way we stackers are going to be able to front run the cresting wave of inflation is to stack then slowly converting some of the PMs to FIAT for our daily shopping.  At least that’s my plan  

    • Or find a store willing to barter for PM’s. I think I have the small store here in town talked into it.

    • Or if it’s possible, you can grow your own fruits and vegetables and do animal hunting to get meats. If you don’t want to waste bullets, then use a crossbow which is similar to a gun so that you can reuse its ammunition. I’m glad to take the 30$ silver opportunity while the others aren’t doing it. :)

  3. Our strong hands are long and have a death grip on the lies! We would no sooner turn over our silver than we would our lead and powder.

    And a fine plan it is, AG.  Many of us are intending to do the same.  Silver… the anti-inflation medication.  :-D

    “We would no sooner turn over our silver than we would our lead and powder.” 

    Yes, brass and lead… the OTHER precious metals, for they allow us to maintain our safety and our possessions.
     

  5. Ther you go Ed  B   Wise words   I’ll shed my silver slowly and only as needed.  Lead and Brass will be distributed more rapidly and as needed.  1,800 FPS downrange.  there will no warning.  Just incoming rounds   Metals are wonderful things

  6. For me, 2014 is way too early for me to prepare against the hyperinflation. There are way more things that are left for me to buy such as foods, weapons, gold, silver etc, for the afterward of the collapse. It’ll will be very hard especially with a low salary! :(
