    I didn't win your draw for "When Money Dies", but bought it anyway and found it a very interesting read.  It was however a little disconcerting to realise that the draw for the book was part of the pre-marketing of your inflation-linked corporate bond fund.  It struck me as quite a jump from today's market environment to a defeated Germany in 1923 and as such had the unpleasant whiff of scare mongering-as I don't think you are suggesting that we are on the precipice of hyperinflation.  But if you do think so, I have a couple of questions.  Do you really think that an inflation linked rate of interest will protect investors if the currency involved becomes worthless?  Do you think you can actually cherry-pick the corporates that will survive a hyperinflation while avoiding the rest.  It seems to me that Mr Schacht's solution to hyperinflation was to wipe out all debts and start with a clean slate…..
