Two years out: Deflation or Inflation?

Everybody is talking about deflation these days as the flavour of the month. Commodities guru Jim Rogers makes the point that - virtually always - inflation follows monetary stimulus ... buy hard assets he recommends, to deal with the inflation which will inevitably follow the very significant stimulus being added world-wide to deal with the banking issues/financial crisis.

He says they are printing "gigantic" amounts of money, and "massive" ("terrible") inflation is coming, 6, 12, 24 months down the road, and the only way to get out of the way of this is to get out of paper assets.

Further points he makes are that he expects agriculture also to continue to outperform given the very low stores of food globally. This is something to think about and study for your own portfolio.
