Overcompensation Of The 2008/9 Recession Causing A Greater Depression?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any thoughts on overcompensation of the 2008/9 recession causing a larger depression - thus what we have been experiencing is a lesser run up [depression to the real thing?

It strikes me that we are witnessing highest ever [xxxx] prices and low wage growth on an international and little prospects of that improving.

Had governments not attempted to bailout the investments they would have cleared themselves by now instead of the world economy looking like it's now in a crackup boom.

Perhaps there are greater forces at work- deflation from technology, peak oil, global warming etc?

Ultimately, the biggest single force is at work is a relatively small change in the proportion of profits going to wages rather than capital.

The progressive impacts - reduced demand leading to persistent low inflation, debt run-up, savings (capital) glut, high unemployment, welfare dependency..all progressively arise from this.

Note, for example, that if we had full employment and robust wage growth, interest rates would not be 0.5%.
