I‘d prefer a deflationary collapse as supposed to turning the dollar into toilet paper. The FED will raise rates, then panic and slash rateswhen the economy pukes because it can’t even withstand rates of 2.5%.If you flipped a coin to decide what the FED policy moving forward would be you'd have about as good of a guess as any "expert", quite literally they are between a rock and a hard place. Their options are 1. Raise rates to fight inflation and watch the everything bubble implode eroding all confidence in western financial systems and quite possibly killing the dollar in the process, or 2. Keep rates down, or dare I say lower them further, and print to infinity almost certainly guaranteeing the dollars death. Really we're headed for the same outcome either way, its just a matter of which path we take.
