That kind of inflation is disruptive and as Volcker era history proves, CB's are reeady to do "whatever it takes" to stop it. Including tanking the world economy. They did it in the early 80's and are ready to do it again. By the way, be it due to african pig fever, due to anything else, inflation is picking up in China.
This isn't the early 1980s. Quite the opposite.
The ROW needs a lower US$. It's going the wrong way.
