The Government has a Printing Press to Produce U.S. Dollars at Essentially No Cost

We are on the verge of debt deflation taking hold via a housing double dip and negative equity. Commodity prices (reflected in food, energy and clothing), plus health care and education costs are rising in a regressive way. Companies have combated this by trying to prevent cost pressures from feeding through by keeping headcount down. This has effectively meant that lower income households get the bad side of both commodity price inflation and debt/income deflation.
