We’ve featured many articles here over the last year or two making the case for or against a long term shift to secular inflation. While the question is not particularly relevant to markets or the economy on a day to day basis, it is arguably the single most important question facing the global economy on a long term basis.
Why? The valuation justification for ever-rising financial asset prices and the mechanism allowing ever-rising debt levels across nearly every segment of the global economy are both predicated on the assumption of permanently accomodative monetary and fiscal policy.
