    Deflation Is Not On The Menu

    A new Martenson Report is ready for enrolled members.
    LinkDeflation Is Not On The Menu

    Executive Summary

    • Why creating inflation is our official policy.
    • Deflation would destroy our economy, our financial system, our hopes, and our dreams.
    • For budgets and pensions to be repaired, we badly need a return of economic growth. Or inflation of our asset markets. Or both.
    • The flood of liquidity that we’ve been tracking is very real and is distorting prices for all financial assets.
    • This ‘recovery’ is a gift.  Use the time wisely. 

    A constant debate rages over whether we will ultimately head down an inflationary path or get sucked into a deflationary whirlpool.  In fact, the most common question I am asked at my public talks is whether the future will consist of inflation or deflation.  So I thought we’d spend a bit more time on the subject here.

    One of the themes that I have been strongly promoting in my enrolled member area is the idea that most of what we are seeing in the financial world these days is more of a reflection of the perverse influence of a liquidity flood than anything meaningful.   Watching how the markets were instantly recovered from the Dubai Debacle on Friday and today (Monday), and seeing gold and stocks and bonds all floating along despite the crisis is just further confirmation for the idea that the world’s liquidity pumps are set to “maximum power.”

    I am truly amazed at what I am seeing out there in the markets these days.  I also understand and share the frustration of the many analysts who know what “should” be happening but is not.

    What should be happening is massive, self-reinforcing deflation caused by debt destruction and resulting from the housing bust and retreat of consumer borrowing.

    These are harrowing figures:
