That's why the rich are trying to bring about deflation. The very rich, however, profit from the deflation, because their dollars grow in value even though they're doing nothing with them. We're on a crash course to bankruptcy again, but they think they're going to patch it all up instead of curing the disease: which is that they're hanging onto their riches instead of putting them into circulation.
In the past, deflation and depression have frequently led to a vicious circle of nationalism, xenophobia, the disintegration of states, and even war which is happening today. It collapsed!--In total deflation! That's a deflation: It the Dollar, the green Dollar, the Green Pig, is literally inflating right now very rapidly. But I was thinking, well it's inflating, so of course it's going up! But the dollar is definitely inflating and it's got to eventually explode.
