The road to hyperinflation

Today president Obama disclosed the projected US budget deficit for 2012.

The projected deficit would reach $US 1.33 trillion in fiscal year 2012. While in December 2011 the trade deficit widened to $US 48.8 billion. For full year 2011 the deficit was $US 1.3 trillion.

Here's what the government forecasted previously (Chart 1). They forecasted a smaller deficit in 2012 of only $US 1.1 trillion. Clearly they got it entirely wrong because the deficit in 2012 is projected to be larger than 2011, namely $US 1.33 trillion. To see what this means go to: The road to hyperinflation.
