02/09/2020 - Yra Harris: Bernanke School of Central Bankers Fear Deflation in a Debt-Plagued World

“The GOLD /CURRENCIES making new highs is indicative NOT OF INFLATION SCARCITY BUT OF CENTRAL BANKS LOSING CONTROL IN THE FACE OF A HEIGHTENED FEAR OF DEFLATION. It is the fear of deflation in a world saddled with record amounts of DEBT,  which the International Institute of Finance (IIF) has cited at more than $250 trillion.

This is what has frightened the Bernanke school of central bankers: deflation in a debt-plagued world. As Powell told me in June 2016 about how the ECB could guarantee their debt load, “THEY HAVE A PRINTING PRESS.” I fear that his response will go VIRAL.”
