Inflation Rates

Overall inflation rates have been tame for some time. However, we really need to keep an eye on this because the actions currently taken by the Federal Reserve (expanding the money supply by buying Treasuries– a.k.a. printing money—in order to goose the economy) would normally be extremely bad for inflation.

The only reason it isn’t inflationary now is because the economy is so poor that the stimulus has not kicked in yet. When the economy can stand on its own again, the stimulus will be removed and the Fed will start selling its hoard of Treasuries; hopefully in an artful fashion that will not cause another recession….
