Tsunami Of Inflation To Hit U.S. With Japan Crisis - By National Inflation Association (17/3/11) PDF Print E-mail

The earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster that hit Japan this past week and the destruction that it caused is nothing compared to the tsunami of inflation that will soon hit the U.S. as a result of this crisis. A tsunami of inflation in the U.S. will mean a complete collapse of our monetary system, which could lead to millions of deaths due to a lack of food and heat. 44 million Americans are now dependent on food stamps, but when the U.S. dollar becomes worthless as a result of hyperinflation, the government will no longer have the power to support these Americans and many of them will simply starve to death.
 
Japan's citizens were smart enough to save up $885.9 billion in U.S. treasuries to spend in a situation like it finds itself in today. The U.S. has no such savings and is the world's largest debtor nation. Our ability to survive depends on our ability to print money that has purchasing power. The only reason the U.S. dollar still has purchasing power is the dollar's status as the world's reserve currency.
 
All Japan has to do is sell their U.S. treasuries and they will have the financial resources necessary to rebuild the parts of their country that were destroyed by this past week's disaster. However, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Tuesday that he doesn't think Japan will unload their $885.9 billion in U.S. treasuries. It remains to be seen if Japan will do the right thing and sell their U.S. treasuries or if they will make the mistake of continuing to artificially prop up the U.S. economy.
 
The Central Bank of Japan (BOJ) in recent days has already been repeating many of the same mistakes the Federal Reserve made in the U.S. After this past week's disaster, the BOJ printed hundreds of billions of dollars worth of yen in an attempt to prop up their financial markets. Japan's central bank should be raising interest rates, which would encourage its citizens to increase their savings so that they have more resources to rebuild their country and invest into the production of clean energy. By printing trillions of yen out of thin air, the BOJ will cause prices to rise for the very building materials the Japanese need to purchase in order to rebuild.

The Daily Reckoning

As we signed off on Friday, the Saudis were suppressing a 'Day of Rage' in Arabie... Gaddafi was mopping up the resistance in Libya... And an earthquake and tsunami left thousands dead in Japan.

But that didn't stop the stock market. The Dow rose 59 points.

Now it is Monday. And in all the excitement we kinda lost track... But we gots to know...

Is the Great Correction over?

We are coming up on the 4th anniversary. Countrywide - one of America's leading subprime lenders - went broke in 2007. That was when it began. After more than 6 decades of adding to its liabilities, America began to off-load debt.

And now we have to face a critically important question. Is the Great Correction over?

The New York Times tells us that the Great Correction has done its work. By defaulting on their mortgages and cutting spending, they've got their debt burden down to the lowest level in 6 years:
