Deflation string-article #2

This past Sunday I blogged about Nouriel Roubini’s prediction that the US economy would face deflation in the next 6 months.

Today, has also published this article in which they report that deflation is becoming more and more of a concern for central bankers.

In terms of economic health deflation is a bad sign.  In terms of mortgage rates the expectation of deflation could help mortgage rates get very low.  That’s why I am hoping that expectations for deflation grow so rates can move lower but that we never actually reach that point.
