    I'm sure I had this in the other thread about "investing for the recovery" or something, but whatever. SO if you see inflation coming, probably best to invest in commodities and hard assets?

    “Now what’s happening is that the Boomers are moving into their senior years and they’re starting to dissave,” Lee told the National Post. Nest eggs that have been lovingly cultivated since the 1980s are increasingly getting plunked down on e-bikes and Rolling Stones box sets — and it’s all adding up to a tidal wave of new spending. Just as with all the government money blowing around, this glut of Boomer cash is similarly poised to bring down the value of the dollar generally.
    It's Boomer's fault again?

    Yes. I see a lot of wealthy guys doing whatever they can to pile money into wealthy-guy things - cars, boats, watches, art... It's all going through the roof right now in a race to park capital anywhere but cash.

    A hard commodity gaining 3% value due to inflation each year is pretty easy to find now. It of course compounds every year that much higher instead of saving at 0.5%.

    Gasoline is the hard one to predict. Electricity as well. You would think it bizarro world that a Texas electricity provider could lose $2.1 Billion in a week and be forced to close, considering they technically pass on the cost to the customers - but thats the way it went.

    I don´t think rich guys buyingcars/boats etc. are so much for inflation protection but moreso a result of the S&P 500 doubling in the last 5 years thanks to fiscal and monetary policy.

    The rich people be buying. Make $50 million, spend $100 million, Evander Kane.

    Still makes me wonder if Trump is actually net positive in assets/liabilities.

    A worthwhile read from Ray Dalio:

    …The economics of investing in bonds (and most financial assets) has become stupid. Think about it. The purpose of investing is to have money in a storehold of wealth that you can convert into buying power at a later date. When one invests one gives a lump-sum payment for payments in the future. Let’s look at what that deal now looks like. If I give $100 today how many years do I have to wait to get my $100 back and then start collecting the reward on top of what I gave? In US, European, Japanese, and Chinese bonds an investor has to wait roughly 42 years, 450 years, 150 years, and 25 years[1] respectively to get one’s money back and then one gets low or nil nominal returns. However, because you are trying to store buying power you have to take into consideration inflation. In the US you have to wait over 500 years, and you will never get your buying power back in Europe or Japan. In fact, if you buy bonds in these countries now you will be guaranteed to have a lot less buying power in the future. Rather than get paid less than inflation why not instead buy stuff—any stuff—that will equal inflation or better?
