Inflation, Deflation and Political Turmoil
April 6, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
The complicated world we live in is illuminated a bit more every week at the North County Chapter’s Thursday Morning Forum in Rancho Bernardo. Forums begin at 9:30 a.m. with a coffee social and registration, followed at 10 a.m. with a one-hour program and one hour of polite, but freewheeling, Q&A.
Unless otherwise indicated, North County Chapter Thursday Morning Forums are held at The Remington Club, Phase II, 16916 Hierba Drive, Rancho Bernardo. Free parking is available at the adjacent shopping center.
April 6, 2017: “Inflation, Deflation and Political Turmoil.” North County Chapter member William Thayer (M.S., aerospace engineering; MBA), author of four books on finance and national security, will describe economic stresses that can trigger inflation, deflation and political turmoil. Political actions are frequently driven by underlying economic stresses such as inflation and deflation. Mr. Thayer will discuss historical examples to bring focus to current economic issues. For example, in the current case of high inflation in Venezuela, there are historical lessons from the hyperinflation of Germany in 1924. What are and were the causes? Deflation will also be explained, with examples, as well as discussion of gold, central banks and related subjects.
