Inflation looks like winningEveryone now must be noticing the increased prices for everything, from sky rocketing commodities to less available and more expensive food. Soon the struggle will be more obvious as stagnating wages will buy less and less things and finances become stretched.
Deflation has ruled for the last forty years as China flooded the market with cheap goods and low wages. We seem to be at a stage where this is all coming to an end.
Deflationists will continue to object, saying technology and robots and overloaded debt will continue to cause deflation. Baldinvestor is not too sure about that.
The world looks to be in the next inflationary cycle with pandemics, deglobalisation, interrupted supply chains and never ending money printing some reasons for inflation.
The fact is that deflation means that debt levels are impossible to repay. Central banks will do everything they can to stop this and this may lead to out of control inflation. They will go to any level to cause inflation, including depositing money into peoples banks until they get it. The world is on a ledge where disaster lies ahead no matter what they do.
Right now with the government seeming to control central banks, we think uncontrolled money printing lies ahead. Buy your real assets accordingly. 2021-05-02
