Many of us know the proponents of hyperinflation; Marc Faber, Gonzalo Lira, the National Inflation Association, and maybe even Peter Schiff falls into this category. When we look to countries that have experienced hyperinflation in modern times we can see direct parrallels between their monetary policies and that of the US's in the past few years and we can draw a quick conclusion that we will experience hyperinflation as well.

In this interview with Erik Townsend, enterpeneur and private investor, Erik argues that this conclusion is too simplistic and does not take into account the 'Five Fundemental' differences between the US Dollar and those currencies mentioned as examples of hyperinflation.
