Deflation Vs. Inflation

Recommended Posts

There seems to be a broad range of opinion on HPC as to whether or not the British economy is in for a major deflationary or a major inflationary episode, so I thought it'd be interesting to run a poll and see where people think we're heading. Don't forget to show your working!

Short period of deflation or continued stagnation - followed by inflation.

Inflation will come when the stock markets top out and all that money rotates in to commodities which haven't done a lot lately.

We're already seeing 'US drought' and 'Russia Gas' headlines.

Also, even though things look a bit ropey I think we're in for a good period of general growth now - which will increase demand for resource again. Once China gets back to growing that demand could be much greater than last time as they continue the move to become a real first world economy.

Deflationary at the moment because....can't pay won't pay, as well as can pay won't pay, can pay must save to protect the uncertain future because no other person will insure it.

....but anything can happen, depends on the future strength of the pound, depends on other global markets and actions.........it's now pay back time, we are trying to pay personal deficits down, the leaders have set the example for us to follow. ;)

Couldn't vote really I expect a fall in the pound that will cause inflation in our imports possibly deflation in anything we don't import. That choice wasn't given.

Japan, obviously. A runaway depression that the govt is trying to arrest with borrowing and spending on an unprecedented scale. If this fails then a default/hyperinflation is inevitable. The Japanese are about to embark on Abenomics 2.0. Desperate measures are now indicated.

So a major deflationary event followed by a major inflationary event? Delayed volatility from the great moderation?
