So the stock market is pogging after vague comments by the OECD - an organisation that notoriously got everything wrong around covid, despite textbook Quantative Easing causing expected inflation outcomes (despite no evidence of inflation)??

We can't avoid some #inflation or #deflation in the overall #economy, so the best result most of us can push for is mild inflation. That requires matching #money supply with changing economic factors. I'd love a version of #crypto that did this automatically, but limiting the amount of #currency long-term is deflationary. Why do libertarians obsess over reducing inflation due to #MonetaryPolicy, when other factors matter too & deflation is of concern as well.

Meanwhile in the global #supplychain;

At the far end (for many goods) in #China, there is currently ongoing #deflation in factory gate prices;

But, at least presently, it would seem that #profits at various stages in supply chains (as well as regulatory costs inc. #taxes), are swallowing up any extra margin(s) that might be caused by such deflation.

So, it real wages are lagging #inflation, taxes are stable & its not the Chinese suppliers, whose pushing up prices?

hmmmm...[scratches head]

What's happening in #China wrt #deflation is pretty simple: people there were using the housing market as a replacement for banks assuming that prices will always continue to go up. They didn't, and now they're poorer, so they're holding on to their remaining cash. Hence deflation. How do you correct this when the property market makes up a third of China's wealth? Absolutely nuts! #economics

While the UK continues to suffer high #inflation, #China has slipped into #deflation...

As we may be about to see, this can cause serious issues for market economies too;

Facing deflation the rational decision on any discretionary purchase is to delay (and wait for further price drops)... such delays start to encourage further prices falls, confirming any decision to delay & indeed suggesting further delay is (also) rational.

A viscous circle results;

is this about to happen in China?

#China has faced many #EconomicProblems this year, from #deflation and record #YouthUnemployment to a #property crisis. But now, an even more worrisome threat is emerging: the colossal hidden #debt of China's #LocalGovernments. Some estimates put the #liabilities of China's local financing vehicles close to $10 trillion.

“Apartments in China are commonly delivered by builders without amenities like sinks and washing machines, or even basics like closets or flooring. Because rents are so low, many investors have not bothered to finish apartments over the past decade, holding newly built but hollow shells in the expectation of flipping them for ever-higher prices. By some estimates, Chinese cities now have 65 million to 80 million empty apartments.” #Deflation

Global hedge funds are "aggressively" selling Chinese stocks amid heightened concerns over the country's property sector and a weak batch of economic data.

"Hedge funds have net sold Chinese stocks in eight of the last ten sessions on the prime book through 8/14," it said, adding its clients divested both their long and short positions.

This is the largest net selling in Chinese equities over any 10-day period since Oct 2022

Guys, what is this distorted mess? Am I tripping? I can cope with #climate collapse, the crumbling of democratic socities, a looming alien revelation, #inflation and #deflation but THIS, this I can't.

I need at least some consistency in my life, at least some confidence in the continuation of human civilisation. #macOS #ui

Konjunkturflaute: Chinas Wirtschaft rutscht in die Deflation

Die Verbraucherpreise in China sind im Juli gesunken. Damit ist es nun zur Deflation gekommen. Setzt sich die Abwärtsspirale der Preise fort, könnte das verheerende Folgen für die Wirtschaft haben.

Q. will the #deflation in #China ripple out across the world (through trading & #supplychains) easing pressure (in the UK especially) on #inflation?

@heiseonline komisch mir wurde schon mehrfach erklärt, dass bei #Deflation die Leute auf Anschaffungen verzichten würden, da sie bald billiger sein werden. Deflation sei daher möglichst zu vermeiden.
Märkte, die trotz sinkender Preise funktionieren: Datenträger und Universalrechengeräte. Bedingt (staatliche Förderung) auch Wind- und Solarenergieanlagen und Akkumulatoren.
Warum wird dann permanente Inflation angestrebt (EU 2%)?
Zumindest kann dann auf dem Papier der Umsatz ewig steigen.
