Sure be cool if we could get an econ forum someday. But I sure ain't gonna sponsor it. I've been thinking about the current economic climate quite a bit. It's hard, because I don't really "grok" deflationary principles (I'm such a Boomer). But, it strikes me that mild deflation might be a good thing. Wouldn't it be better economically if folks where rewarded for saving? I mean, money is a claim on goods, and when somebody saves instead of consuming, then there are more capital available for investment, which hopefully results in more enterprise. On the other hand, that ATM to the special interests that is our government has a huge VISA bill. And, that ain't gonna be pretty after a few decades of deflation. So I dunno, what do you think? Deflation, good or bad? And why?
