Reflationary Monetary policy

Hard working, frugal men who save by purchasing bonds and holding cash are doomed by central bank's reflationary monetary policy.

Government policy favors investors and consumers. It is especially true with countries that run a big deficit. As an investor you need to watch out for inflation.
