With rates rising on the 30 year treasuries will the Chinese now increase their purchases or will the Fed start buying them to keep rates down?

Paul from Newport Beach, CA
Where is the commercial real estate collapse? What effects do you see inflation having on income property performance? The energy and fuel costs are strong eaters of profits for landlords.

I know you’ve talked about this in your book Crash Proof, but I’m just curious how likely the US dollar is to lose it’s status as the world’s reserve currency. What economic conditions would have to exist for other countries to walk away from trillions in US debt just to keep the US from talking advantage of their ability to print more money therefore exporting inflation to other countries?

Paul from Alberta, CA
How will the collapse of the American dollar effect the Canadian dollar? Is it safe to hold Canadian currency during the next five years?

Kevin from Catonsville, MD
I was curious on your take on the Canadian Law that takes effect starting in 2011 where all oil and gas trusts must be corporations. I own one that you recommend that has already converted over to a corporation but how do you see this effecting the overall industry in Canada and future dividend payouts?
