by Thomas Sowellvia Crescent News
Friday, February 22, 2019

Seventy-one years ago last month — in January 1948 — a black, 17-year-old high school dropout left home. The last grade he had completed was the 9th grade.

The Danger Of Deflation Still Looms Over Japan

quoting Thomas J. Sargentvia Forbes
Wednesday, May 24, 2017

According to Japan’s GDP figure for the first quarter of 2017 (released on May 18), the Japanese economy has grown by an annualized real rate of 2.2%. Most welcome this as the country's longest economic expansion in 11 years. Don't be fooled by this figure. It is actually a warning sign for Japan’s policymakers. Why? Because the nominal GDP has been shrinking slightly. The gap between growing real GDP and slightly shrinking nominal GDP is, of course, deflation. GDP deflator has declined by 0.6%.
