For the sake of argument, let's stipulate that we will accept that the world is coming to an end and that 1980's Brazilian-style hyperinflation is a foregone conclusion. More so, we will also willingly accept that this will happen in the next several months - again, so as to set the parameters for this flight of fantasy.
So, the question before the house is, why wouldn't this be a great time to take on as much debt as possible, specifically in carefully purchased real estate, with the aim of having to pay back these loans with significantly reduced valued dollars?
One more caveat, let me also couch the above question in terms of purchasing real estate which can easily be rented to nothing short of excellent quality tenants, people who will continue being able to meet their rental obligations, as well as doing so at a more than acceptable cash flow levels.
I know would like to invite this community to "have at it" and look forward to everyone's opinions.
