Almost everyone is predicting that there will be QE3 (in whatever form), QE4, 5, 6 etc. There are some deflationists out there but I have not found too many from my readings. In the last 25 years there has been 21 countries that have experienced hyperinflation. Meaning that the Central Banks have plenty of experience with hyperinflation. They know what causes it, they know how it develops, they know how it behaves, they know the effects on population (aka slaves) and they most importatntly know what happens to themselves. So quoting zerohedge : My question then is. Why would they ('status quo', power elites, whatever you call them) prefer inflation over deflation? Why do they never stop printing?
