    Good point. Deflation is NOT the worst thing that can happen. Like inflation, deflation is a description of a change in monetary value. Inflation means that the value of money is shrinking while deflation means that the value of money is increasing. Leave it to the banksters to state something so simple in such a bass-ackward fashion so as to obfuscate the issue. Because of this, the money that we have goes further when deflation occurs and less far when inflation occurs.

    But the banksters don’t like deflation and will pull all manner of tricks to ensure that only inflation occurs. They will do this because inflation robs all of us of the value of the money that we have worked so hard to earn while deflation gives back to us that which they have stolen… and we simply can’t have that, now, can we?

    You got that right ed-b. Anything and everything that benefits us like deflation with increased purchasing power is anathema to banker interests.
