If massive inflation was coming 10-year treasury rates would not be yielding a record low 1.60% and consumers would certainly not be deleveraging!
Might massive inflation be coming down the road?
Certainly, but it will take a change in attitude by consumers and banks or massively reckless policies by Congress.
Interestingly, Congressional policies are indeed "massively reckless" just not reckless enough yet. The emphasis is on "yet". I will not be a deflationista forever, but I remain one for now.Read it at Mish’s Global Economic Trend Analysis
