Desinflação explicada em um minuto


Entendendo a Deflação

Quando os preços de bens e serviços caem, ocorre a deflação. Embora possa parecer uma vantagem inicial, a deflação é uma maldição para a economia, pois desencadeia um ciclo prejudicial. Os lucros das empresas diminuem, impactando negativamente a economia.

Impacto na Economia

A redução dos lucros empresariais pode levar a demissões e redução salarial. Com menor renda, as pessoas consomem menos, o que diminui a demanda por bens e serviços, agravando a deflação.

Comportamento do Consumidor

Aqueles com emprego estável podem aumentar seus gastos, mas isso raramente é suficiente para compensar a deflação. A percepção negativa da situação dos demais leva a um aumento do pessimismo e consequentemente a uma redução nos gastos. Isso cria um ciclo vicioso prejudicial para a economia.

Portanto, compreender os efeitos devastadores da deflação na economia é crucial. Medidas preventivas são essenciais para evitar esse quadro e promover um ambiente econômico estável e próspero.

  1. This is the biggest economic myth of our time. Deflation is good and should be welcomed, depending on the circumstances. Deflation makes us able to afford and consume more. Imagine if the price of eating at restaurants would drop. Then people would eat out a lot more often, because they now can afford to do so. The demand for eating out increases. The restaurants hire more workers to cover this increased demand.

  2. There might be a fundamental flaw with this. Say there's a price drop of 5% for product X, Timmy loses 5% wage selling X, material costs to make X also drop by 5%. So no one technically earns more or less… It's the exact same proposition with inflation. But I know nothing.

  3. inflation = increase in supply of money and credit = rich elite taxing you and screwing you and your savings
    deflation = decrease in supply of money and credit. The rich elite want to avoid this one… hmmmm…….

  4. That makes no sense at all if prices went down people would have more purchasing power even if wages decreased people would be incentivized to buy more. Inflation only benefits the rich while deflation would benefit the poor

  5. I don't think deflation can happen without a strengthening of the dollar. Goods and services in America cannot cost less dollars without the dollar becoming worth more. This can't happen because of the trillions and trillions of EXCESS dollars that have been and ARE now being printed and flooding the world, making YOUR dollars worth LESS and goods and services YOU purchase costing MORE of them. If the government were to collect most of those excess dollars and burn them, then we could have deflation as long as the dollars strength in the world was maintained, and that continued strength is becoming less and less likely. Trillions of EXCESS dollars were printed to bail out the so-called elite, their friends and families, and to BUY their political agendas with free money to populations both BEFORE and after they acquired the ability to control who would win elections without suffering backlashes from doing that which they could not also control. I don't think there will be deflation. The dollar is far to diluted and mismanaged for that to happen while at the same time much of the world is turning against the dollar and America.

  6. Well. As long as the CEOs get to keep their high wages. :p
    I'm all for deflation at this point. I dont see it happening but something has to give. Wages havent kept up with inflation..

  7. deflation and better prices are considerably different matters. It's also true, a one payer health system is very dangerous. It doesn't mean there are very real needs of diversity of options. The connections with community and healthy sharing can NOT be skipped. The egos running rampant will hurt us all exponentially.

  8. civil servants and first responders are very much needed in transitions, but it is not the same thing as shifting large power and finance constructs into only labor hands. And, these large spheres of influence… whether disease state, governance, faith structures… are not immune from basic human dynamics. The reality of love and healing and the knowing and unkowing of us all.. as translated into markets and supplies and demand and the actual needs AND transitions. Breathe….

  9. How about considering the possibility of negative inflation rates to increase the value of money? We could reduce wasteful spending and consumption, and instead adopt a more sustainable approach similar to nature's ecosystem, from an economic standpoint.

  10. GiganticWebsites.com is a project through which I make it possible for people to build truly gigantic websites (thousands of articles each!) at ridiculously low prices. If you have a great domain you want to turn into an amazing website or an existing site you'd like to upgrade/scale, visit our website or check out the One Minute Economics presentation video below:

  11. "If prices go down, the profits of businesses tend to go down with them" – NOT IF THEIR COSTS ARE ALSO DOWN. The ultimate cost in all industries is food (the ultimate reason why you pay your employees or why anyone would like to get paid) if not fuel (how food is made and which is our capital energy). Fuel businesses wouldn't make so much a loss as to need to lay off workers, since the ultimate reason for their expenses, i.e., food and other things of survival, would be cheaper as well. They are already making too much profit in the current situation esp since they're almost monopolistic in a country, and they are the primary drivers of inflation, just like in the recent times if you've heard of the war. The government would start lowering their fixed fees as well, in a similar manner where they increase it in accordance to an instance of inflation; otherwise the people and businesses would complain of course.

    To make deflation advantageous, one should lower the prices of such basic commodities, which can naturally be done using competition or industrialization (more efficient production). As such, your currency will have more value, because you have much more wealth relative to the total value of currency that is circulating in your country. That's a bit better than businesses just jacking up prices coz they have the opportunity to.

  12. The people consume much less when prices are high, dude. They won't consume less if the prices are low, wtf. Businesses wouldn't just lay off workers like that; that would be a rare occurrence because their costs are also down.
