Deflation is a common decline in costs, frequently brought on by a reduction in the provide of dollars or credit. Deflation can be triggered also by a lower in government, individual or investment spending. The opposite of inflation, deflation has the side impact of elevated unemployment due to the fact there is a lower level of demand in the economy, which can lead to an financial depression. Central banks try to quit severe deflation, along with extreme inflation, in an attempt to retain the excessive drop in rates to a minimum.
I comprehend that FOFOA does not necessarily believe the elites are all element of 1 unified group, and I would agree, but I also assume he underestimates their degree of coordination, explicit and implicit, and their mentality. Which is also why I do not assume we must assume they are loyal to particular corporate or political institutions, simply because these are generally transient and can be replaced.
If the extended-run equilibrium price level is larger – as 1 might count on it to be if the monetary base rises – then the impulse response would have to be hump-shaped in order to have lengthy-term deflation. But I now see that that is not what is taking place in this model. What I consider is happening is that permanent 1-time Fed policy modifications result in permanent 1-time fiscal policy adjustments that permanently alter banks’ will need for collateral, and hence permanently boost the demand for money, thus decreasing AD and causing deflation now and forever.
There is a far a lot more successful and lower-cost remedy – remove everyone with a net worth of significantly less than $50K. Then ALL the entitlement applications, which account for additional than 70% of government spending, and all the a variety of taxes that fund them, go away, most of the crime goes away so the dollars spent on police, courts and prisons can be greatly lowered, and so on etc.
The FED is a skimming operation, it skims productivity ‘fat’ for it’s owners. It actually permitted individuals to hold most of their productivity (witness larger standards of living) via most of it really is existence. Then, along came Alan Greenspan. His incompetence developed a horrendous credit bubble. Now, because Berflunkie took rates down to zero 7 years ago, they have turn into a slaughter house operation. They are now actively killing the economy with their parasitism, just like the Communists did in Russia. The names have changed, but the results are the very same. Also much dollars in too few hands. End the FED!
