Very interesting article by Tyler Durden on hyper inflation. Two things are interesting to me.
1) He distinguishes between Inflation and Hyperinflation. One is an overheated economy, the other is a collapse of faith in the currency, and the two are only nominally related.
2) He believes the onset of hyperinflation will be a "flash" event brought on by what every one with four functioning neurons has been telling us: we have simply shifted our toxic asset bubble from tech (1999) to real estate (2008) to treasuries (now). US Treasury debt has ballooned out to gargantuan levels (1.5 trillion of new debt, 2.5 times in two years what it took us 200 years to accumulate). His scenario for how this will happen looks very reasonable to me.
