If this administration succeeds in what it is trying to do - ramp up inflation - then there is no place to hide.

“there is no place to hide...”

Actually there is. First is hard assets, whose value will rise with inflation. Stocks are not hard assets. Debt with fixed low interest rates is as well, because the debtor is paying the debt off with reduced-value dollars, and even the principal owed keeps losing it’s value. This is one way inflation kills those with cash and the lenders of fixed interest loans. It’s a penalty on what should be a wise investor - the lender.

In deflation, cash is king, debt kills.

Safe place is described by Shakespeare: Neither a borrower nor lender be.
