  1. Higher TFSA limit for next year would be HUGE! Hopefully the federal government will come out with a formal announcement soon. Have a good weekend R2R!

    • I know. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that. It’ll be a huge gift for Canadians….even though Harper government is trying to entice the crowds just before the election next year, I will take it 🙂

      Formal announcement is expected around Halloween. Have a great weekend!

  2. R2R,

    I think it is interesting and timely that you lead this week’s Chatter edition with a reminder of inflation. It has been a while since we have experienced this money sucking vampire of wealth, but beware. The basic economic law of supply and demand teaches us that when you increase the supply of anything, the value or demand for that thing diminishes. The Federal Reserve has inserted over $2 Trillion into the banking system using QE1, QE2, and QE3. It is not a question of if, but when will we start realizing that inflation is back and draining all of our incomes a little at a time. The only hedges against it that I know are hard assets like gold, silver, and real estate.

    Thanks,

    • You said it, Deets. People like to argue that its not really money printing, but however you spin it, access to cheap money only means one thing – inflation! It is only a matter of time, before it shows up aggressively – the way the Fed is playing this game is they are just watching and waiting for it before they raise the rates. So, its almost agiven that it will show up soon. On a side note, Ive always speculated that its probably their game plan of digging themselves out of this debt issue – inflate their way out of it!

      Owning real hard assets is the only protection one can depend on.
