The big question is what happens to all those hundreds of billions of dollars created in recent years - the record corporate cash pile, bank reserves, etc. - AFTER 2014? It doesn't take much imagination to foresee a period of hyper-inflation being stoked once the downside pressure of the 120-year cycle is lifted. Unless I miss my guess, it will be in 2015 and thereafter when we'll see rising interest rates and the corresponding long-term collapse in bond prices

The CBO has infered that the dimwitted monkeys will be starting a hike soon ....

Economic growth will remain slow this year, CBO anticipates, as gradual improvement in many of the forces that drive the economy is offset by the effects of budgetary changes that are scheduled to occur under current law. After this year, economic growth will speed up, CBO projects, causing the unemployment rate to decline and inflation and "INTEREST RATES"to eventually rise from their current low levels. Nevertheless, the unemployment rate is expected to remain above 7½ percent through next year; if that happens, 2014 will be the sixth consecutive year with unemployment exceeding 7½ percent of the labor force—the longest such period in the past 70 years.

Won't interest rates start to rise when the currency war currently being waged enters it's final phase?
