The Inflation/ Deflation Outlook

Recommended Posts

Infaltion: Cost of living

Deflation: Asset prices

Wages: not doing much in real terms.

** too drunk to post more right now.

Not sure I follow your argument. What is 'Infaltion' anyway?

Take tax for example.

Put tax on goods and you measure inflation.

Take tax out of the pay packet and there is miraculously no inflation.

At the same levels the net result is the same though - you get less for your effort.

Cant they adjust for this?

They seem more than willing to adjust for hedonics, which would seem a lot more subjective.

That would involve reminding people how muh tax they are paying. Basically tax is spread in this way to hide the overall level of taxation that is being imposed.

Bottom line is what most people perceive as inflation is how uch they have left to spend against their salary, what they are going to perceive is inflation even if some items deflate.
