If my information is correct, the US Government has had trillions of dollars in cash printed with no sure way to shore up the value of the US dollar. While done early on in the whole credit debocal the inflation which would normally step in an hurt the value of our currancy was offset. Right now with the amount of paper money in the system, and banks still not loaning it out, I believe it is time for the Fed to start pulling that cash back out of the system. This will cause the value of our currancy to increase, products (gas, food, water, power) to become cheaper to every person, and the government itself. Now I could be wrong, I am no economist, but that is my two cents.
