Look at today. Today is the beginning.

The world is printing trillions $$ and ££.


Nice mix coming up. Wage deflation, unemployment and inflation of prices.

Deflation is over.

Printing money has knocked it dead. From now on in, everything you buy is going to cost more money. But you won't be getting a pay rise.

A bit of a rise as people move their money into safe bets. I still expect deflation of prices of non basics.

I disagree. Britain, Japan and USA all have queezing at full speed. There's trillions inflating the global economy. 1970's inflation here we come!

Not yet.

M0 is high, M1 and M2 are rock bottom. When M0 starts flowing into M1 and M2 you'll get inflation. So not till next year.

Strictly speaking in the UK M0 and M4. But I think what happens in the US is crucial, we're just a 2-bit player.

The FTSE will fall to under 3000 before all this is over. Then I'll buy a shed load.

Is that a pun of "4" and "2-bit". :confused:

I read a good piece recently on why, contrary to received wisdom, broad money increase/decrease actually precedes narrow money.

Most people think that due to the money-multiplier effect, M4/M3 is affected by M0 changes, i.e. the dog wags the tail.

This article argued it's really the tail that wags the dog.

I'll try to dig it out.

M4 is moving quite freely so that's a good sign. :laugh

I've worked out why CyberCretin's house is worth a lot more than his neighbours houses.



He doesn't live next door to a cretin.

My first thought when you said "M1" was Thompson Machine Gun (a.k.a the Tommy Gun).

Then I had visions of gangsters in Roll's Royce's (Al Capone's favourite car), roaring up and down Wall Street, shooting innocent passers-by.

Then I realised that I'm not in the 1920's, and that this is modern day.

And the the same statement applies, except for 1 word.

Then I had visions of bankers in Roll's Royce's (Al Capone's favourite car), roaring up and down Wall Street, shooting innocent passers-by.

plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

The Retail Prices Index (RPI), which includes housing costs, fell to 0% in February on an annual basis from 0.1% in January.

Have a look at the logo on the top left corner of every page - the one that says "The IT Contractor Portal" :rolleyes:

Non-IT types are still welcome in TPD, however :hug:

Seem's to be the norm these day's. If a word end's in an s, add an apostrophe, just in case.
