    Inflation or Deflation ahead?

    On the other side of COVID-19, do you foresee inflation or deflation? Several friends went with inflation without much thought. I think deflation is a real possibility. Thoughts?

    When the inflation rate becomes -2% and mortgage interest rates are -1%, that's going to start confusing the shit out of people

    I flipped a coin and it landed on the edge.. 8-)

    anyway my guess is deflationary.. even though the number of crispy green back being printed everyday now are some really crazily unrecognizable number

    Expand that to "Yes. No. Maybe." and you'll be ready to run for public office.

    His twice-a-week blog also gives an American perspective that extends to the state of our world in general:
