Been seeing quite a few remarks about deflation as opposed to inflation on the 'net. The kind of thing Japan has been reeling from for 2 decades, but on a worldwide basis. Commodities are down across the board, China's economy is tanking. We may actually see the Dollar buy more here at home as prices drop. Hopefully not a huge crash, but the possibility is there. Apparently not great for the rich, not great for raises either. And once it starts there will be a spiraling down trend. Everything will get cheaper. As companies and governments look at macrotrends it makes me wonder if the reason so many shed their traditional pensions is because they foresaw this coming, with less revenue meaning they couldn't cover the pensions. Personally I hope it happens as my small pension will only go so far.
