Inflation vs. Deflation - What Comes Next? (Part I)
Sunday, June 14, 2009
I want to cover quite a bit of background here to properly set up today's topic of Inflation vs. Deflation. But because of my schedule, this would require stringing out three reports over five weeks, and given where we stand in the markets today, that isn't ideal. There is much afoot, and I want you to be armed with as much timely information as I can provide.
So we are going to jump to the end and discuss the conclusions before the background. I will fill in the background in a later Martenson Report. If you find this report difficult to follow for this reason, I invite you to re-read it again after the background information comes out in a few weeks. I appreciate your understanding.
- Inflation correlates best with government spending.
- Inflation/deflation is a dance that exists between the supply/demand for money and the supply/demand for goods and services.
- Most government spending growth is in mandatory categories - not simple to reduce.
- Inflation will bail out debtors? Don't count on it.
- Future generations have been consigned to a tremendous economic challenge.
- Prepare now for upcoming destructive inflation.
