Inflation is clearly bad.  I am not so sure that deflation is so bad.  I suppose it comes down to "bad for whom" ?  If I pay less for energy and food why is this bad ?  Of course deflation probably also means higher unemployment – that would be bad.
 

A little inflation isn’t bad, neither is a little deflation but we are talking about a lot of inflation and/or a lot of deflation.

High inflation and high deflation are two sides of the same coin. With high deflation your money is worth more but your wage drops significantly and money is hard to come by. With high inflation there is plenty of money around but it is virtually worth-less. So does it really matter?

I think the bullet is in flight and there isn’t a damn thing anyone can do about it. We are just waiting for the impact.

You and I agree.  It wasn’t that hard was it ?  LOL

It was very quite in the FX markets today.  Mondays are usually slow unless there are events over the weekend.  Today it was quite.  We did a little more that half the deals we usually do.  It is like everyone is waiting…

Word. Keep pushing on them preparations, CMers. Six months of food in your pocket is worth more than 100 ounces of gold. VIVA — Sager

Re:  QE 3.  Jim Rogers take  – in the first (of 5) segment of the interview – it’s about 3:30 in from the beginning.  Turd Ferguson asks him about QE3.

QE3 is happening in a number of different ways right now.  Nobody is talking about it.   Operation Twist and huge swaps with Europe.  They can not stop.  If they stop there will be a collapse.

…that there’s all this wondering-out-loud about QE3 and as near as I can tell, it’s been going on for a goodly while now.  

U2 wrote a song called “Running to Stand Still”, although it’s a pretty mellow tune.  What’s ongoing right now seems more like The Great Hamster Wheel Of Doom.  

One man’s opinion…
