The FED can’t manufacture inflation

Let’s get one thing straight….
The Federal Reserve is hopeless at trying to produce inflation.

It’s had bandied about some fantastical 2% inflation target for years. M2 Money Supply has risen by $6 trillion in 5 years, with half of that occurring in the past 3 months (and more to come) and still isn’t any sign of inflation.

It’s advisable to read up on Debt Deflation. That seems a more probable outcome.

Having said that, inflation could well rear its head as a result of something such an oil shock. Incidentally, the energy complex has a significant weighting when calculating inflation.

I don’t say this because I’ve recently re-read the events of 1970’s but there is some merit of that occurring within the current landscape.

But the Federal Reserve won’t be the ones who “create” inflation.
