For most economists and various commentators a general fall in prices, which is labeled deflation, is a terrible thing. It is held that deflation is a precursor of a severe economic slump. Hence the central bank must fight it aggressively by means of monetary pumping. Our analysis, however, shows that deflation takes place as a result of previous inflation. This amounts to the disappearance of money that was previously generated out of “thin air”. This type of money gives rise to various non-productive activities. Obviously then, a fall in the money stock that is followed by a fall in prices is good news for wealth generators. It arrests the diverting of real wealth to various non-productive activities that emerged on the back of monetary inflation. This lays the foundation for a durable economic recovery. In the meantime, our monetary analysis continues to indicate that US economic activity is likely to weaken visibly in the months ahead. In Q2 real GDP grew by 2.4% below expectations for 2.6%. The latest data shows that Japanese manufacturing activity has weakened visibly in June and July. In Australia the growth momentum of price inflation is poised to weaken sharply.
