41. Declining dollar increases the price of commodities
The QE2 will increase the price of food, oil, etc because the rest of the world's currency will appreciate and outbid the US for them. This will be the real source of inflation. I look forward to $4 gasoline and increased food prices just so the bankers can pump up the stock market.
