One hopes that the prices of gold touched to the year 2009 new maximums. The consensus is that in the long term all the rescues that we are seeing, are in the automotive industry, the banking industry or others will generate inflation and that would be positive for gold.

Why one is afraid to (to hiper) the inflation?
The demand of gold is increasing while the debt of the American Government headress levels record and Reserva Federal (FED) maintains the types of interest near 0%.
Experience of the past:

When there is inflation in the system - defined by a growth of the supply of money and the credit the currencies are debilitated. If you have a problem that arose as a result of an excessive growth of the credit and the indebtedness in the system, cannot be solved still accumulating it more debt.?

If adjusts it by the inflation, the previous historical maximum of 1980 of 850 dollars would be equivalent to 1,844 dollars present.? According to the different estimations, the number varies, and following John Williams de Shadow Government Statistics the true price of gold ssría in about 7,267 dollars the ounce.
