In Honor of Janet Yellen...

... if you want to call it "honor", that is.

It's official, President Obama has picked San Francisco Fed's Janet Yellen to serve as Fed Vice Chairman, replacing good ole salty Don Kohn who will be getting the hell out of there before the shit hits the fan. Might be a tad late but whatever.

Anyway, in "honor" of JDA's most loathed Fedhead's new position (if she accepts, which she will), how about some of Janet Yellen's greatest JDA hits?

JDA, what bothers me is that it still looks like we are in a deflationary period with trillions of dollars being extinguished in real estate and commercial loans.

Sure, I see inflation on the horizon but only after this deflationary plays out.

chemist, maybe an economist.


Define "deflation" - do you mean forced price-cutting out of desperation or do you mean the collapse of our currency? Prices are just prices, right?

I don't know if you can call this deflation. It's the evaporation of fake money, which would be outside of the parameters of "deflation" as the actual economists define it.

The vaporization of made-up money (and later attempts to correct this vaporization like "mark-to-Disneyland accounting changes by FASB) is not deflation. They cannot indefinitely counter this with new money - the "inflation on the horizon" that you refer to is closer than you think.

It isn't deflation you and I are watching.

tattooed hipster, not at all an economist but smart enough to know fake money when she sees it

Are you a fan of the Austrian school? Curious..


"student of", I don't know if fan is the right word but yes. Doesn't my hatred towards Janet make that obvious? :)

So what would you think of moving our money to a mixed basket of commodities, not just gold and silver but also a energy basket as well? We're sitting on a lot of it in the USA.
