There are many many many many people who say that hyperinflation is not a real risk for countries like Japan, USA, or the UK. Some people even say deflation is the real risk. I challenge anyone like this to debate hyperinflation with me. Mostly I am thinking of a blog to blog debate but I don't rule out a face to face video debate. My Hyperinflation FAQ is my opening salvo, so anyone can respond to that. I think I really understand how hyperinflation works but want people to try to poke holes in my logic. I want a clean debate with no name calling, just good logical arguments.
My Hyperinflation FAQ is long and many of the points are related, so I recommend you start with the points you think are easiest to refute.
If you post a reply to my Hyperinflation FAQ please comment below and I will link to your post at the end of this post and the end of the Hyperinflation FAQ post (assuming it is polite).
I have over 17,000 views on my Hyperinflation FAQ so far and not a single post replying to mine and linking to mine.
I have been a bit obsessive compulsive about hyperinflation for years now, using Google to find discussions all over the net. I have answered just about every reasonable question on hyperinflation that I have seen. It is like I have run out of good new questions. I miss the challenge. I am looking for a worthy adversary. If you can step up to the plate, please do. If you know someone who might be able, maybe send them a note.
I challenge anyone who thinks that hyperinflation is not a real risk for Japan to try to poke holes in my Hyperinflation FAQ. Where exactly did I say something that is not correct? Please quote the sentence and explain the error.
If someone would like to moderate a blogging debate I would be happy to participate. If someone wants to moderate a video debate I am even up for that.
If you agree with my Hyperinflation FAQ and would be willing to mention it that would be welcome too. Or if you mostly agree but differ on a few points, that is fine too.

8/11/13 Armstrong Economics - I sent an email and then this post showed up which seems to be a response to my FAQ but he does not mention or link to my FAQ. He wants hyperinflation to mean "inflation ending in the death of a currency" but that is not the standard definition. It also does not allow you to tell at the time if you are in hyperinflation or not.
