Comment: Well written, nice read!

Well written, nice read!

Well written, nice read! A small note though - the link marked "Why the End of QE May be Bad for the Dollar..." at the bottom of the page doesn't work [the others there do]. I found my way there by other means and found these in the last two paragraphs...

"cessation of QE would undermine the value of the dollar"
"hard assets like gold and silver... should rise"

"if the Fed continues with QE for a longer period of time,
eventually confidence in the dollar will be lost"
"hard assets like gold and silver will rise"

How closely do you equate an undermining of value with a loss of confidence? Would they be effectively the same? You imply they should have similar effect on hard assets like gold and silver. Would they have similar effect on other economic criteria?
