The Terror of Deflation v. The Love of Inflation

Can you imagine the money, that you work so hard for, actually increasing in purchasing power every year? Can you imagine your bills gradually falling over the years, instead of relentlessly rising? Of course you can’t! And the reason that you can’t is because of the government-created monopoly called The Federal Reserve.

So the counter argument his first point would be that the US was on a fixed exchange rate in the 1920s and now we are on a floating exchange rate. What's the counter argument to that?

Dr. Paul, I would like to hear your thoughts on this blockchain project https://soveos.one The entire goal of it is sustainable deflation via a decentralized blockchain asset. It sounds like something you may be interested in based on this interview and many other things I've heard discussed on the Liberty Report.

Red Flag Laws, Central Bank Fed.Printing with Inflation, UNCONSTITUTIONAL Freedom Act or Patriot Act, 17% homeless in California, Student Loans, Permanant Wars, Home Owners Losing Homes, McConnell says, "no more Social Security Trust Fund," HUD Sec. Catherine Austin Fitts & Dr. Skidmore documented $21 Trillion missing money, and FASB56 no accounting budget policy are indicative that we are not a legitimate government, but, we have become a Fascist Regime Pray for America — God Make Us Good Again. Thank you.

my opinion inflation is used to prevent austerity measures, plain and simple. have a discussion about shrinking government welfare the public goes nuts. economics is boring to most people and inflation provides an easy answer. Have an economic convo with a neo-con or liberal and they'll find every excuse in the book as to why the government needs to finance something they like, they won't care how their programs are funded as long as they're funded

Bath house Barry sodomite Soetoro spent nine TRILLION dollars in the eight long years of his wretched gay tyranny. It has become a crazy mix of the movies "Idiocracy" and "midnight meat train".

everyone should fear the loss of purchasing power… that is precisely what happens and with the debt ceiling being suspended it is the sheer terror of inflation that awaits… the politicians want to be liked and get reelected so they ignore monetary policy and become Fed apologists… the government is too powerful and a lot of people are stuck in republican and democratic politics as usual of massive spending, entitlements, welfare and war.

Happy Birthday Dr. Paul, a true American Patriot who works over time to helps to inform Americans the TRUTH in geopolitical, geoeconomic, geostrategy events, globalization you name it. If only Americans could have more people like Dr. Paul representing us coast to coast this country COULD be great. Thanks for everything Dr Paul.

Maybe slightly off topic, but I've noticed that if I carry a balance on my credit card, I pay about 17% on it, but I only get about 1.5% on my savings account. If the bank can get 17%, why can't I get at at least 10%. No, a fair profit isn't enough. They have to have an obscene profit. That's because they're all working together. No competition or market pressure.

Should roads be private? Highways, and city streets? I guess not huh… Maybe there are some things that are best done by the government.

Inflation / Deflation

Relative To Gold/Silver

Gold =Money
Silver = Money
August 1971 Forward = Deflation

It's a liquidity trap . They can not escape borrowing , not just borrowing but borrowing exponentially .

Could you please do a video on The Volcker Rule, as I heard it was amended. Have these bankers found yet another way to make things go their way? It’s hurting the American people, enough is enough, the greedy must go.

Inflation is like war, no average everyday person wants it. Some people do though, I'll let you guess who they are.

Only the first people to get newly printed money (banks) profit off of inflation since they get money at a pre-inflated value. It only decreases in value after they spend it.

Inflation vs Deflation Dysgenics vs Eugenics Conservative vs Liberal.
Don't worry. There's gonna be a Jubilee (Old Testament style) on 09/23/26, to forgive ALL THAT DEBT — right there, in the New Temple that Trump builds in Jerusalem.
"Discount" the Debt — let the bond-holders take the 60% loss. Raise Interest rates to 8% on the Ten-Year Bond. Hint: Neo Eon Currency — or New Yuan. It's still a coin toss.

Government debt makes the idea of deflation unthinkable.

You also under counted the inflation in the price of a hamburger.

If it was .25 in say 1940 and $6.00 today, that is not the full picture. It takes much less inputs to produce that hamburger due to the great strides in agriculture, food processing and distribution since 1940.

In a real sense, in today's dollars, counting the advances in efficiency since 1940, a hamburger would be about a half a cent.

Responsible justified growth of the money supply limits runaway inflation. It's important but needs to be economically sustainable. Similarly, the counterbalancing concept of GDP needs to be justified responsible growth so the production doesn't overly damage the environment. Production is important but needs to be environmentally sustainable. The two counterbalancing concepts are married to each other in the free market as people borrow money into existence and as people bring fresh harvests of production. They say money doesn't grow on trees as a childish put down to test the mindset to see if you're real economist. Money does grow on… Read more »

Technically you are not forced to use the USD. You can exchange GBP, yen or euros, etc. if you want in your transactions–no one would do a thing, even if you did so in the US.

Considering the issue of foreign inflows of capital, and the 1930s depression, consider that an economic calamity in the US would cause foreign capital to leave, effectively decreasing the money supply. Also, the drop of value of all the equities also impacted the money supply, as these people no longer had money they had previously. These would be primary causes of deflation in the 1930s that were inadequately dealt with at that time. Deflation again feeds lower transaction volume, as people hold their money rather than spend it to benefit from the increasing value, further stunting the economy and prolonging… Read more »
