    Why is it taking so long for inflation to get to us? It seems China is taking the brunt of the inflation from us by consuming raw materials, wrapping it up into a widget, and shipping it to us. But those widgets are still cheap right now….has a recession overcapacity been outsourced to China? I’ve been thinking of ways to hedge the onslaught of inflation combined with low interest rates, one approach was to invest off-shore, but the more I think about it, the less appealing it seems to be. Any thoughts?

    We went to our brokerage firm today, we are scared, there were some people upset and yelling at our broker. We don’t know what to do, I think the Fed won, they always do.
