Do you worry about the coming inflation?

How would you make any response to it?

Worry about [Economics] inflation?

Take some aspirin. Oh, you said "inflation" not "inflammation."

Worry? No I don't worry. But, I expect inflation to occur. You can see it recently in the surge in commodity (oil, gold, corn, sugar, etc.) prices. When the raw materials inflate, the products that they go into begin to inflate, too. Soon everything from computers to cars will cost more.

You will also see a weakening dollar - meaning that your dollar buys less.

But, it's not all bad.

On the good side payrolls will increase and your debt will be effectively worth less than it did before.

What do you do about it? You can change your investment strategy to invest in things like gold, silver, commodity ETFs, or Treasury Inflation Protected Securities - TIPS.

I am not sure if that answered your questions. (Your questions were not very clear.)
