Inflation versus Deflation

by Rodney D

Dr Jeff, firstly thanks for your tiresome work.

I have been in the camp of silver being an inflation hedge.However most recently I have been questioning this, not so much that gold/silver are inflation hedges but more so are we going to get inflation. there are some defaltionists out there and to date I have simply acknowledged they have a view........but the deflationist view at this juncture would appear to be getting real traction, and that will have a material impact on gold and silver. Quite simply their view is that all the money printing will not increase unemployment and hence will have no impact on the velocity of money. One has to say since the peak of gold/silver in 2011 they have been spot on.....with scary accuracy.
I am now getting worried that i could be blowing my future by betting on inflation...........and deflation is the exact opposite. Someone is right and someone is wrong and the outcomes of the views are extreme.

What are your thoughts?


We will have deflation until the moment we don't...And in that moment the dollar will go to it's intrinsic value of zero.

The Schiff of this world, the nut jobs World Health Organization yell that inflation can strike the North American country... these folks don't even grasp what inflation is, apparently. Or else, they're deeply hypocritical; however, nothing in their discourse reflects what inflation is concerning. Buy Essay Online .Inflation is solely and easily this: devaluation of cash relative to product and services in an economy. That's it. It will however have an effect on behavior? Through the expectation... once folks expect the value to rise, they have a tendency to pay more; after they expect them to fall, they have a tendency to save lots of additional.

Deflation first, THEN INFLATION NEW
by: Tommy

Dr. Jeff,
First off I'd like to say that I believe that Rodney meant your "tireless" work NOT "tiresome."
BUT I could be wrong. lol

That out of the way. Rodney, the guys who are calling for deflation have OBVIOUSLY never been to the grocery store, the gas station or the movies, among other places. Because DEFLATION is definitely NOT happening at ANY of those places for sure. They are only correct in the area of housing prices and possibly electronic devices if you ask me. Housing because of the gross unemployment figures and electronics because of the advances in the technology. The big picture is for inflation in the long run. By hitting the precious metals markets like they do, they are doing you, I, Dr. Jeff's readers and China a favor, so we can buy more metal for less dollars.

With the central banks not putting the money in circulation, but putting all their excess dollars into the stock market, inflation has not been as high as it will be later. The Fed and ECB and BOJ are still INFLATING the money supply on a daily basis. Once the BRICS get tired of it and begin to dump their dollars,euro and yen, all hells gonna break loose and it's away we go with MASSIVE INFLATION for all. Patience is the word of the day right now. That and "dollar cost averaging" will be the secret to financial security for your future...IMHO
