    Rates are lower. If you can qualify. Most can't.

    I will factor in the very few that could refi though and adjust my range from 6.99% to 7.99% current inflation so we can find some common ground.

    Your premise is still very funny.

    Macro don't cheat, you were referring to mortgage rates, not prices.

    The fed has to do massive qe....to create inflation in housing...to counter deflation in housing....which they caused by dropping interest rates to 0%....

    Great premise...good luck with it.

    Macro, you have made it clear you have no idea how inflation is calculated.

    rent has dropped? Where do you live?

    Or are you talking about mortgage rates? If your bank allowed you to refi then yes, you have a lowe payment, and most likely started a new 30 year term. If you bought anytime in the early 2000's and after you are most likely without equity at best and more likely underwater. No deflation for you!

    I agree with your concept as a whole, except the part where prices are remaining constant.

    to make sure we are on the same page I meant 7-8% on the low range, and that is currently, not some time in the future. The panic is sometime in the future, not inflation.

    I think Abe knows this, and yet he goes for it anyway. He is at the end of his rope. We are not too far behind.

    I agree with the first part.

    As for investment gains, assuming you are not a typical piker, which I have concluded you are...You assume anyone actually cares whether you have have gains and losses...thus leading to the part where you never win a popularity contest.

    Logical thought good luck with TIPS. I owned floating rate bonds a few years ago. I did not take into consideration that a bunch of traders buying each other champagne and promising each other thousands of dollars if they suppressed interest rates, screwing me and scores of others. I hope the mass class action lawsuits pop up and bury the banks. But I am not holding my breath.

    I will not be buying inflation protection from the same entities that can manipulate it rates going forward. If you want real inflation protection own real assets.

    Wow, we agree that the CPI has been stripped of almost all things that could actually end up measuring inflation.

    So you are left deluding yourself into trusting a purposefully broken mechanism. That I guess is where we differ.

    I won't waste the rest of this thread wrecking you the way everyone else did on that tech "article" you wrote. It seems you are on an island on this thread in claiming there is no inflation. Have fun on your island.

    You also get people suing subway for shrinking their sandwiches, you get the horsemeat lawsuit in Britan.Games being played with coffee...etc etc.

    The game is up when the bond selloff hits. Once people see inflation being 7-8% plus they will panic. But that still may be a long ways away.
