Currency Debasement?

  • Real rates have declined almost everywhere in the developed world, the savings glut doesn’t turn into an investment glut.
  • The result is excess capacity, slow growth and underperforming economies. How can this be turned around?
  • If desired savings and investment can equate only at deeply negative real rate, higher inflation targets are one logical solution to get there, but not one without cost or risk.
  • One of the risk is that we’ll finally get the long predicted currency debasement.
