The same predictions will probably be apropos 10 years, or 20 years from now as well. Not a big surprise. Middle East = conflict, always has, always will. As long as we need their oil, we will be involved in their messes too. You can mark me down for that prediction.
Paul was wrong about inflation though. At the peak of the banking crisis I also listened to the doomsday idiots (Wall Streeter analysts, not Paul) saying our inflation was going to make Zimbabwean dollar look like a new gold standard. I learned the hard way it’s not wise to bet against the dollar when the world runs on dollars. The FED was right and Paul was wrong on this subject. Fed says we’re deflating not inflating. Maybe Paul needs to listen to the FED more?
