The Beauty Of Deflation: It Reinstates Lost Liberty

Deflation goes hand in hand with releasing the individual from the debt enslavement that was created with the monetary policies of the past 100 years. Nigh unlimited printing of money has become the orthodox strategy to avoid deflation. Deflation was made the scapegoat for all sorts of economic ills in a century of pro-inflation propaganda. For deflation to happen government interference in money and the economy needs to stop. The endorsement of deflation goes hand in hand with safeguarding liberty. “Paper money has become the technical foundation for the totalitarian menace of our days.
Oh well, This sounds like the working man's bailout and The Central Bank's Nightmare

The euro zone’s consumer price inflation rate declined below 1% in early 2014, getting closer to zero during 2014, nowhere near the ambitious 2% benchmark set by central banks. A further small downward adjustment in the inflation rate has put it into negative territory, so harmonized euro area consumer prices are now declining. Western monetary authorities and economists appear genuinely fearful of deflation. Headlines in leading papers reflect this fear very strongly, describing deflation as “the world’s biggest economic problem”, or a “nightmare that stalks Europe” that could lead to its “demise and collapse”.

The real question is though, why do our governments fear deflation? Why do they perceive it as a chronic disease that could infect the economy and why do they go to such great lengths to avoid this “taboo” event? The mainstream argument is that we should avoid deflation because it causes a drop in overall demand and hence lowers economic growth (Germany and other European countries have experienced a slowdown recently which has resulted in a downgrade of 2014 and 2015 growth expectations). Also, deflation implies lower corporate earnings and asset prices, particularly real estate prices.

Well, this sounds real bad lower Real Estate Prices. I;m sure a lot of the newly employed Millennials will just Hate This!!!

So, My ATS Friends and Family, It looks like that dreaded deflation that The Politicians and Central Banks tell us is so bad for us might actually be good for us.

Imagine house prices, medical care, education, food prices, Fuel and Cars going lower and lower. It would be like getting a raise without asking for one. Because if we wait for employers to be giving out raises anytime soon, it just seems it's not going to happen.

Maybe The Default on Sovereign Debts might be the answer to the Wealth Transfers that we've had from The Middle/Lower Classes to The .001 Percent. Thus taking back the money hoarded out of our economies and doing a complete reset, kinda like starting a New Game of Monopoly all over again! HaHa.
So what do you think Y'All, have we been getting scammed for a long time that we need inflation? Or, is it perhaps the other way around, As we produce more goods and services per hour worked, shouldn't we be benefiting in some of The Fruits of our Own Labor?

Inflation is the PRIMARY monetary tool the Ultra Elite use to control the masses. It really is that important. Sadly the mechanism and all it's ramifications are generally too complicated for people to bother understanding.

Deflation is the mortal enemy of the elites. I'm surprised they let Japan go through it but I believe they didn't think it would happen for so long or be so bad. They will never let deflation happen again, that is for sure.

I had heard for years that before a true collapse commences there will be stagnation and deflation followed by hyperinflation. Could this be a canary in the coal mine?

Well Noeltrotsky, The Boom/Bust Cycle is rather hard to avoid, especially when you get to the point when Credit can no longer be expanded due to over indebtedness of Both Nations and Consumers (Not having the underlying income to service debts). This is about the point in the game we are at now. No matter how much credit is offered People/Companies/Nations no longer want to take on more debts as The Underlying Assets which guarantee this pile O'Debt has been pledged so many times to so many different People/Entities that just a couple of moderate sized defaults can now bring the whole debt Ponzi Scheme down through The Derivatives Market. As Warren Buffet called The Derivatives Market (A Financial WMD). LOL. We indeed live in interesting times my friend! Good Reply and A Star for you
