Dry investing article, but solid advice imo if inflation hits.

Some highlights:
5% is magic number. If inflation hits 5% (recent history 2%), then both bonds and stocks get hammered.
Consumer durables get hit the worst during high inflationary periods (-15%), so maybe look to rebalance your portfolio with a bigger % allocated in energy and healthcare.
Gold as a hedge against inflation is largely attributable to its performance in 1979. So don't fall in love with gold.
Bitcoin isn't the answer unless you are into volatility. It is 6x more volatile than gold (whoa).
