Eurozone in Danger on Falling Purchasing Power of Dollar, Not Rising Commodity Prices

All financial prices in the Eurozone are badly skewed. So far, the price inflation environment has been benign, but this year, things have been changing. Higher levels of debt will never allow the ECB to run interest rates up sufficiently to kill price inflation. More likely, positive rates of only one or two per cent would be enough to destabilise the Eurozone’s financial system.

Beating Inflation Could Get Even Harder

Financial repression basically means ensuring savers can’t beat inflation. When savers lose out, debtors win. And our government is one of the biggest debtors around. The classic tools of financial repression include encouraging positive inflation, holding interest rates down below that level & limiting the options for savers looking to maintain their standard of living.
