    All this money printing is not going to stimulate the economy, because they are still deleveraging. They will keep the interest rate low in the mean time. People often mistakenly thought that we are in deflationary situation, because the world in high unemployment and low economic growth. What is important is to keep watch on the prices. The prices are in fact increasing. This is where Mr. B get it wrong. Housing price in the USA is not picking up, because banks are refusing to finance them. But as with other items are increasing in price, housing will too.

    We in sg will experience capital flown in. Our dollar will become stronger. Even if unemployment increase and our GDP shrink, inflation will still stubbornly high. Some people wrongly think that high unemployment means lower prices. Even if our GDP shrink, prices can still creeping up.

    The cure for stagflation is actually hyper inflation. Given 2 choices between economy stagnation or hyper inflation, gov will chose the later. That's what the FED is doing, propping up the employment figure on the expense of higher inflation. We in singapore will experience a high degree of "imported inflation" as the result of money printing operation by foreign gov that can take years.

    Everybody is a banana republic these days given the race to the bottom, or rather hyperinflationary top.
