Fundamentally deflationary

as evidenced by the sharp drop in gold + silver after the announcement and the pop in the dollar.

Frankly, I'm quite surprised at this.

There will be no change in policy.

In the words of Marc Faber, "They will print, print, print."

Yep,

Seldom in prepping this is pointed out.

You can have all the food ammo etc but when you lose your faith your loving ways -- you will perish.

Time is short.
