    We should be in a strong deflationary period and would be if the fed weren’t printing it up.

    1. Marque2 is spot on. The question becomes, what happens when the presses stop?

  2. maybe if the author of this absurd article actually looked at the rising cost of an array of goods and services like food, gasoline, healthcare costs, college tuition, utility and water bills, he would instead focus on the real inflation rate, which may be in the area of 5-6% higher than the officially rigged gov’t figures.

  3. Quantitative easing is not the answer. At $85 billion a month we’ve had very little growth. QE goes to the big banks and ends up in the stock market. To a large degree it doesn’t get into the consumers hand. To increase inflation you must have more purchasing power by the consumer. To do this it will take tax cuts. That’s not in the fed’s mandate.
