IT’S ALWAYS AMUSING

In several recent posts on the Tiger I have speculated on the possibilities of Inflation/Deflation and of course I have waffled like hell , and ended up saying both in the long run.  Now we Americans are famous for not looking further than a quarter ahead, after all that’s what our business and country do.   Monkey see , monkey do is our key operative.

Two of my favourite journalist/economics writers came out this week with somewhat opposite opinions.  John Williams (Shadow Stats) is calling for Hyper Inflation maybe as soon as 2010 but his time frame is within 3 years.  On the other hand Mike Whitney is calling for more deflation in 2010 and inflation in the long run.

Zero Hedge is calling Williams forecast delayed do to a flat CPI this month.

My latest take on the matter here.

OF COURSE THE LATEST SHADOW STATS CPI IS NOT O FOR THE MONTH

The point of all this is to divert your attention from knowing the future..
