The "what if?" game

What if the normal end to this bullish business cycle, which we've been in since march 2009, ends right on schedule (averages considered) in 2014/15.  What if 2014/15 is when we start seeing this inflation we all know is on the horizon?  Could this produce a stagnant economy or even depressed economy amidst the backdrop of near hyper-inflationary levels?  Oh darn, I just scared the crap outta myself.  I don't wanna think about that.  But apparently not too many other people do either since I haven't really heard that possibility discussed much.  Just had to put that out there since it's on my mind.  Thanks all :D

The way I see it is you would want to be in equities, and also PM exposure.

That's what many Fools, myself included have been doing for the past few years.

Sitting on cash would be a losing proposition in my book.

No equities,  yes hard assets.  If inflation picks up, velocity will decrease, as there willl be chaos and confusion.  Equities do not have a history of protection against rampant inflation.

Valy what are you using for a history?

Zymbwaye... or Germany circa 1946.

 I'm just curious as I've asked myself the same question, and have no answer.

Why would'nt equities go up with the price of inflation, just like any other commodity?

Thanks for all the comments.  I've thought about this a lot and I think I'd try playing the currencies.  Predictable volatility in some vs the obvious stability in others.  Oh, and gold seems like the obvious call especially with that great interview with Jim Rogers I saw posted on The Fool the other day.  http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/jim-rogers-conditions-will/761951

I have no idea why this should  come to pass.  Personally I submit mlps work under many circumstances.

As for currencies, that is a whole different ballgame; one I am not even remotely qualified to answer.
