Bernanke Lecture II Decrypted, Inflation 79: Deflation 0
The word 'inflation' dominated the words and thoughts of the propagandist-in-chief as he described the Fed's role in the global economy post World War II this afternoon. The 11,400 word speech contained a record-breaking 79 uses of the term 'Inflation' and exactly Zero uses of the word' Deflation'. Subliminally, we notice that the word 'might' is randomized in between the words 'Prices' and 'Inflation' and the words 'War' and 'Risks' are uncommonly tangential. We know in our hearts that the 8 uses of the word 'Paul' was Volcker-related but its proximity to the word ' bit' and 'inflation' leaves us questioning the deus-ex-machina that is Wordle and Bernanke. 'Monetary policy' and 'crisis' pop up a lot and it is evident that we have a 'financial economy' with the word 'Stable' only appearing 0.0015% during the speech.
