This is superland: expect an upwards trend on profits!

Apparently the continuous QE3 monetary inflation effort is not strong enough to get us out of the perma-depression. There are rumors to go Weimar for real now:

The Fed has worked for decades to suppress inflation, but economists, including Janet Yellen, President Obama’s nominee to lead the Fed starting next year, have long argued that a little inflation is particularly valuable when the economy is weak. Rising prices help companies increase profits; rising wages help borrowers repay debts. Inflation also encourages people and businesses to borrow money and spend it more quickly.

Fasten your seatbelt, this economy is going places. I suspect disk drives will be manufactured, bought by government and carted directly to the landfill.
