The real depression never really ended, the FED infused banks poured $ trillions into the markets creating a bubble along with cheap monies borrowed by corporations to buy back stocks. No helicopter monies, the trump tax cuts really helped the upper classes. These big banks also increased their derivative exposure which is highly vulnerable now to a credit crunch. Easy for those pulling the strings…mass wealth transfer yet again…I believe the gold will be used to create a reset…more or less a ponzi scheme by the Banks to profit. The masses have gone even deeper in debt and at some point their buying power will be exhausted. The only reason for a hyper inflation scenario is that “deflation” will kill the crony corporate banking system. Yet since we really have no way of knowing what the FED balance sheet really looks like, this game might go on a bit longer but only as long as the masses can continue to consume.
