Dollar Devaluation Coming Soon

Hi Smart People,

I know you are here, and so I ask: What happens to my mortgage, (7 yrs old, fixed rate, 5%) when the $ is devalued?

Do I gain on this deal? If not, how can my contract, which is legally binding under the Constitution, be amended without my consent?

I only promised to pay back $, not gold, oil, or whatever.

Thanks for your smart answer!

That depends on your income.  Back in the inflation of the late 70's, I got double digit percentage cost of living wage increases a couple of times.  As long as you stayed employed, the mortgage got cheaper & cheaper.

I don't see that happening this time.  Wages are flatlining while prices rise.  In other words, there is a good chance you ain't near as angry as you're gonna be!

Sorry for the unhappy view - but always remember, people who try to predict the future are always surprised by what actually happens!
