inflationFORT LEE, N.J., April 16, 2009 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — The National Inflation Association today released the following statement to its members: “Today, hyperinflation is the last thing on most Americans’ minds because they can’t see it yet and they don’t know it’s coming.

Imagine taking a bottle and putting into it a bit of bacteria that you can only see under a microscope. Now let’s say this bacteria doubled in size every minute and after 55 minutes, you still don’t see any bacteria. But then, five minutes later or one hour since the bacteria started doubling, the entire bottle is full of bacteria.

Massive monetary inflation is already taking place today. Nobody can see it yet because temporary forces have pushed consumer good and commodity prices down, which has tricked economists into believing deflation is the real problem.

However, almost every action President Obama, Congress, and the Federal Reserve take every single day is sowing the seeds for hyperinflation. You need to invest today as if hyperinflation is already here, because once it arrives it will be too late.

People often ask us, how to invest in gold and how much gold is too much to have. There is no such thing as having too much gold. Although you should never put all your eggs in one basket, it is much better to have all of your money in gold than to have it all in U.S. dollars. The U.S. dollar will inevitably return to its true value, which is zero. Gold will always retain its value; unless huge new gold discoveries are made, which is very unlikely.

Many Americans are afraid to invest heavily into gold because of its volatility.
