Buffett on CNBC warns of looming big bond losses

NEW YORK - Bonds are "a terrible investment" right now, Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and Chief Executive Warren Buffett told CNBC Monday. He recommended holding a comfortable amount of cash but otherwise investing in "productive assets", and called having a set asset-allocation strategy "silly." Bond prices are artificial right now given the Federal Reserve's purchases of $85 billion a month, "and when that changes, people could lose a lot of money."

Buffett in 1987:

“The faith that foreigners are placing in us may be misfounded. When the claim checks outstanding grow sufficiently numerous and when the issuing party can unilaterally determine their purchasing power, the pressure on the issuer to dilute their value by inflating the currency becomes almost irresistible. For the debtor government, the weapon of inflation is the economic equivalent of the “H” bomb, and that is why very few countries have been allowed to swamp the world with debt denominated in their own currency. Our past, relatively good record for fiscal integrity has let us break this rule, but the generosity accorded us is likely to intensify, rather than relieve, the eventual pressure on us to inflate. If we do succumb to that pressure, it won’t be just the foreign holders of our claim checks who will suffer. It will be all of us as well.”
