Now, what initially caught my attention was this headline right here:
“The Fed is expected to make a major commitment to ramping up inflation soon”
https://www.cnbc.com/2020/08/04/the-fed-is-expected-to-make-a-major-commitment-to-ramping-up-inflation-soon.html

Well…all of it really comes down to a term known as DEFLATION. This is, as you would expect…the OPPOSITE of inflation. This is what happens when the price of everything around us GOES DOWN, and all of a sudden – the longer we wait to buy something, the cheaper it becomes because our money has more purchasing power.

In a DEFLATIONARY economy, the prices of goods and services are going DOWN…so, every month, things become cheaper to buy, and if you just HOLD ON to your money…you’ll feel good knowing that it’ll be worth MORE the longer you DON’T SPEND IT.

BUT what REALLY ends up happening is that people just STOP spending money, because they know that money is just going to go up in value, so they hold off from buying anything. That causes demand for those goods and services to drop, which further causes people to spend less money, which causes businesses to scale back because they aren’t making as much money, which causes people to lose their jobs or take reduced salaries, and now because they don’t have as much money to spend, they don’t spend anything…and that sends everyone into another, far deeper recession.

Inflation, on a small, controlled scale…is a REALLY, REALLY GOOD THING. If people know their money is going to be worth just SLIGHTLY LESS in the future…it’s going to incentivize them to spend it, because if they wait too long – their money is going to be worth less. That’s good for our economy, it’s good for business, and it’s good for wages because employers can generally afford to pay a little more as their revenue increases a little more over time.

In the SHORT TERM, deflation could very well happen because businesses are shut down, people are still stuck inside, and no matter how much money the FED introduces into the economy – there needs to be a viable way for people to spend it, otherwise if you print money and just hold on to it – it’s almost as though it doesn’t exist. OR…if you have nowhere to spend it, and you just INVEST your money instead…then the INVESTMENTS begin to rise in value.

That leads ME to believe that the BEST thing to do in the SHORT TERM is make sure you have enough saved up to cover 6-9 months worth of your expenses as an emergency fund, preferably held in a high interest savings account – and then, just continually invest consistently into REAL assets like stocks and real estate that should rise on par with inflation long term. That’s it. Some people also say GOLD…but I’m still not a fan of precious metals LONG TERM, and since I’m a long term investor – I like something I can hold on to for 20-30 years and not worry about it under-performing.

But remember, in the short term – anything is possible, and the stock market is just as likely to go down as is it to go up – I have no idea, I’m not psychic, and timing the market like this is a terrible idea. BUT…given the last 100 years of data available to us…investing in the markets over a 20 year period has never ONCE produced a negative result, and that’s likely the best choice of action if you believe we’re going to see much quicker inflation once our economy begins re-opening.

    G: The best financial advice I can give you is to save, then invest! Oh and pay off your debt! Don't go into debt!
    G: Deflation incentives saving your money, instead of spending it. So it's bad. It's also bad for debtors & it disincentives people to get into debt.

    Funny how this goes exactly against healthy financial advice. I don't buy it. (No pun)

    I see you've bought the Federal Reserve (a privately owned company BTW) story that inflation is a good thing. It is not. For one thing, salaries outside the 1% have never kept up, so your standard of living goes down year after year. What is inflation? It is the Federal Reserve printing more money out of nothing (by pressing a button) and confiscating this wealth from everyone on the planet. Basically a tax paid to a private company. Since the early 1900s, the purchasing power of the US dollar has gone down 97%. All this printing of money means you eventually go into hyperinflation, like Venezuela, where your currency is more useful as toilet paper than for buying things. Look up Currency Default on Wikipedia, it has happened hundreds of times. All fiat currencies (backed by nothing but a promise, ie: not gold) goes this way eventually. Every Single Time. Now, this 0.6% inflation is a complete lie. Do you see 0.6% inflation? Of course not. That number is calculated ignoring housing, energy, gas, etc, reportedly because those items can vary due to speculation. Unlike back in the 80s, inflation took into account everything a typical family bought. Somewhere there is a on-going study of buying 500 products (housing/insurance/gas/clothing/etc) from 100 US cities, and over the past 10 years and the number they come up with is 10% per year. Look for yourself. What do you see when you go to the grocery store? Do prices seem to be the same as they were a year ago?

    Inflation only temporarily benefits companies in that people will borrow and buy now as opposed to later. But what happens when they can't borrow more money? Meanwhile they are paying interest on that loan, how productive is that? Look at the Federal Government, they have borrowed a huge amount – not from themselves because they gave away the right to print money to a private company instead of doing it themselves. And they are printing/borrowing around $1 Trillion dollars per month.

    The US has the best government that money can buy.

    10:50 says he "doesn't want to invest in precious metals because he likes to invest 20-30 years in the long run", then shows a graph of Gold vs S&P500 from 2010-2019…. haha. Gold has outperformed stocks in the last 30 years!

    For every crypto enthusiast, trader and investor alike, remember not to panic. The world has not seen an asset like BITCOIN and may not even see it again in the near future. We are privileged to be at this early enough, although some may feel it is a late entry. As for all crypto-related trading patterns and signals, Kevin Hermen has been the man that many people are looking for and his system has been of great value to me as he made me make 2 BTC in the last 2 weeks with its easy use Commercial SIGNS and upgraded bitcoin mining hardware. I really appreciate it and here to let others know about it . He can be reached at Whatsapp +1(612)424-2271 for any crypto-related query

    Does that actually happen when deflation happens? Does the average consumer really go "I should hold on to my money because it is increasing in value"?
