As global pressures force the Fed into further Treasury debt monetization, as global confidence in the world's reserve currency evaporates, risks remain particularly high of a U.S. hyperinflation beginning to unfold in the first-half of 2011along with severe economic, social and political consequences that will follow. The outside timing for this manmade financial catastrophe remains 2014."
