Buffett: Investors Should Avoid Long-Term Bonds Tied to Greenback

Warren Buffett, the billionaire who urged Congress in 2009 to guard against inflation, said investors should avoid long-term fixed-income bets in U.S. dollars as the currency’s purchasing power will decline.

“I would recommend against buying long-term fixed-dollar investments,” Buffett said today in New Delhi. “If you ask me if the U.S. dollar is going to hold its purchasing power fully at the level of 2011, 5 years, 10 years or 20 years from now, I would tell you it will not.” – Bloomberg
