We Need A T L A (three Letter Acronym)...

Recommended Posts

Just thought we shoudl try and come up with a catchy phrase/title for the phenomenon whereby low inflation means that debt doesn't quickly evaporate.

"Low inflation means loans linger longer" is a great signature, but I wonder if we could come up with something catchier that could be used by the press and have the same era-defining character of "negative equity"...

giving scope for puns about lippiness, lipstick, lip service etc etc

TLA is a Three Letter Abbreviation as it does not make a 'word' like say TAl or LAT. which would make it an Acronym.

Strictly speaking I'm not being pedantic.

No, you're just being footling...

"HELD" mortgage - High Ever Lasting Debt

"LoLa syndrome/effect" - Long Lasting Loan

in "DEEp" - Delayed Equity Expectation

Fantastic suggestions everyone. Keep 'em coming. This widely neglected, yet remarkably simple, aspect of economic theory is going to define the UK for sometime, IMO.

It doesn't have to be a TLA; some two-word phrase like negative equity would suffice. Just has to be catchy/technical.

My suggestion is "non-depreciating debt", as in:

"Yeah, I was like totally screwed by NDD in the late noughties"
