Vijay recently published a 28-page article titled "WHY CREDIT DEFLATION IS MORE LIKELY THAN MASS INFLATION: AN AUSTRIAN OVERVIEW OF THE INFLATION VERSUS DEFLATION DEBATE” on Libertarian Papers (link the full article in PDF). Below is the abstract:
This article provides an Austrian overview of the inflation versus deflation debate which has captured the attention of the economics profession in the years following the US housing bust. Much of the Austrian analysis of this debate has focused on the massive expansion of the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet and attendant creation of new reserves. Several Austrian economists have predicted that the creation of new reserves will cause a massive increase in inflation. The money multiplier theory, on which these predictions are based, is criticized and an overview of the Austrian business cycle theory is provided to explain why banks are reluctant to issue new credit. Finally, an analysis of the politics of deflation is provided and a class theory is presented to explain why a policy of controlled credit deflation is more likely than a policy that would result in mass inflation or hyperinflation.
