The age-old debate rages on. Are we heading into deflation accompanied by a strong dollar, or hyperinflation and the demise of the dollar? I was writing about this issue, and taking the deflation side of the argument, in the late 1980s. At the time, the late great Murray Rothbard called the deflationist arguments “a veritable tissue of error.” He maintained that as long as the Fed can create money out of thin air, they will never allow deflation to take over. That is the position Jim Rickards takes in the following video. I strongly urge you to watch it – he presents a logical and convincing argument. Then, check out the short video, which is a debate between Rickards (anti-dollar, inflationist) and Harry Dent (pro-dollar, deflationist). Who do I think is correct? Sorry, Harry, I have to go with Jim.

CIA Insider Warns: “25-Year Great Depression is About to Strike America”
On Wednesday, September 17, Harry Dent was at the Yahoo! studios in New York, where he debated the future of the dollar with James Rickards, author of The Death of Money. Harry is very bullish on the dollar And Jim is certain the dollar will collapse, so this turned into a heated discussion.
As dollar pushes to new highs, will the Fed halt its run?
Here is an email below from one of our readers.
Brandon, thank you – and you are correct and I agree with you! We made a great choice when we brought Andy Hoffman on board, and another one when we hired Bill Holter. I don’t think you can find two better writers anywhere in our industry – and I don’t think you can find a better firm to work with than Miles Franklin. I’ve spent the last 25 years making sure it would be so.

To: Andy Hoffman,
It is my pleasure. Thank you for taking the time to respond. Please take the two minutes it will take to read this – it will be worth your time.
I feel compelled to share with you how I feel regarding something you are already aware of: hiring ‘Ranting Andy’ was one of the smartest things your firm could have done. I cannot even begin to tell you how influential he has been in my career, my life and the benefits that influence has had on my family. I feel genuine gratitude. I doubt even Andy knows his impact – he is a sincerely genuine and humble man… even though I have suggested that he run for POTUS! He rightly balked at the idea. His influence was on par with some of the greatest names in the gold space. I expect he is feeling deeply uncomfortable with this praise right now… get over it Andy and just feel the good kind of pride that comes from a job well done.
I used to build houses… thousands of them. Literally. When the bottom fell out of the market, in ’08, I realized that all of my 30a+ experience in my market was based on the assumption that, “There is nothing safer than houses.” I now know better. Previously, I had consulted with our Federal gov’t, local gov’ts, banks, engineers/architects, trades and lawyers. I realized that it was all based on a lie. I had to leave that industry because of what I learned – the system’s foundation is broken and, maybe, one in one hundred had any idea of what happened or how it will end. I have made it my mission, since then, to protect those who are willing to objectively examine the current monetary paradigm and to help educate them on how to protect themselves… and maybe wake up one or two. Just like Andy. Entering the securities industry was a completely new experience for me and I am now even less trustful of the system. What I now understand keeps me up at night. I feel comforted by the money managers across the country who are open to ‘The Story’. The experience has been fulfilling… to say the least.
I direct customers to MF, who wish to deal with an American firm, because of my trust in Andy. I trust him and, therefore, trust you.
I will continue to direct people to your firm based on his efforts and what MF does as a beacon of hope for ‘We the People’. I often consider the plight of Americans and hope a return to a Constitutional Republic happens… alas, I fear the damage may be irreversible. Hence, my support for what you, Andy and MF are about.
The gold community is a small one, relatively speaking, and if we don’t support each other then who will? Enjoy your weekend and thank you for taking care of my friend.
With Sincere Regards,
