"popular" view???

Certainly the world has never before seen world-wide fiat currency
debt burdens on the scale we see today.

Some form of total collapse seems certain. When and what happens is
anybody's guess.

At present my opinion is going towards inflation for consumables and
deflation for assets.
Which makes for pretty miserable outcomes for the general public.

5 million USD for a loaf of bread and, No I don't want to buy your
house or a gold bar.
