  • Great Depression and monetary policy?

    Whenever discussing the Great Depression, it is always argued that high interest rates imposed during the Great Depression (Specifically 1931) worsened the Depression because investment was curtailed.

    Now I understand of course supply and demand, and that as an economy is more productive prices decrease. However, will not other prices have to increase as well if the money supply is constant?

  • Re: Internet Bubble - Caused by Government?

    [quote] Was the famous internet tech bubble caused directly by government/central banking?[/quote] Yes. The question is which way it caused it. The Rothbardians think that it, and all other economic crises at all times with no effort to check the actual facts, was caused by the Federal Reserve inflating...

  • (Hyper)inflation vs deflation scenario

  • Wages under inflation

    I've read in a few places that wages are affected by inflation and deflation later than other prices, but I can't find any books or articles that explain why this is so or that offer evidence to show that it is so. Can anyone please help me find something? Thanks.

  • Does the contraction of bank balance sheets counterbalance the effects of the FED expanding the money supply?

    In a commentary on, the author dug up some material he quoted in an attempt to debunk the concerns that people have about the massive expansion of the money supply leading to severe inflation down the road. (Which is my concern) I believe the writer of the qouted material is claiming that bank...

  • How can you have prolonged asset price collapse in fiat currency regime?

    Does anyone know of any research, or theory, that helps explain the phenomena where asset prices crash in economies that use fiat currencies? Japan, for example, has seen asset prices for real-estate and stocks decline for nearly 20 years, despite the fact that this nation uses a fiat currency and the...
