    Prices have gone up everywhere, from stamps to gas, to food. everything. How can they say there’s no inflation? Its all one big banking scam.

    Prices are going up far faster than wages and that’s killing the economy.

  2. Paper Guy says:

    deflation is clearly better if we lived before 1970. but since we are in a central bank system, we need a little inflation to keep us in check.

    Its not ideal, but society has borrowed so much money that we cant go backwards. We’re stuck

  3. Ben Bernanke Fool says:

    Let the money rain! Don’t save! Spend! When you can’t spend anymore, borrow!

    Thank you Fed for letting me spend far more than I could ever make.

  4. Dear Ivan Lo

    Were you at the recent Agora Symposium in Vancouver where this was laid out almost word for word – a friend let me listen to his set of audio CD from this conf.
    this set of facts was presented so clearly on the Agora Symposium CD that for the first time in my life i actually understood what the heck is going on —

    Who really gives a hoot over what happens to the S & P 500. The ted is not the only liar in the ball game. Those “expert” who claim that an INDEX of AMERICAN stocks is of vital importance to investers must join the ranks of those who can be believed at one’s peril.

    Thank you for this easy to read, rather thorough summary.

    I’ve shared it with my children wo need to “listen up!”. In my view I choose deflation BECAUSE I believe it will be the only way we can buy time to save the planet. Too many people view money as something that is just THERE – like water and oxygen. I believe that deflation is the only way we can slow down enough for people to learn what they need to start putting the horse back in front of the cart, the planet before the economy.

      This is so true Brian. Kids these days want everything given to them. Entitlements are overblown and every one votes for the guy who will give them the easy way out.

      Let businesses grow

    Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

    “I believe that banking institutions are more
    dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.

    If the American people ever allow private banks
    to control the issue of their currency, first by
    inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on
    the continent their fathers conquered.”

    Speaking of investing in stocks, how are you feeling about Balmoral and Uranerz? Still confident in their future?

    Don’t we need inflation in any economy for there to be spending?

    One of the reasons against Bitcoin functioning well as an economy is its high appreciation rates.
    With an appreciating currency, people would have higher purchasing power but would rather save then spend or invest. Lower spending and investment results in fewer jobs being created and lower GDP on a perpetual basis.

    For the modern economic system to operate, there needs to be a healthy amount of inflation.

      as a currency*

    2. Pacman says:

      Abdul: that is exactly what they want you to believe. Think about it from a simper perspective. Lets say the new PS4 costs $500, people either save up to buy it or they go on credit. if they go on credit, more people can easily buy and sony can charge more and more knowing this. However, if they save up to buy it, no one is buying or spending. Credit makes purchasing expensive things easy.

      But lets say the pS4 drops there price to $250. Then everyone rushes to buy it and no one needs credit because its cheaper. Deflation actually creates more spending, but less borrowing. and banks can’t have that because then they don’t make interest.

      We have to start looking from the simple concepts. If things are cheap, people buy and don’t need to borrow. Just like Ivan said, deflation in the early 19th century caused strong economic growth because things were cheaper.
