Economic signals are everywhere - from fashion magazine covers to grocery stores to military events.
Malmgren empowers the public by revealing the story of the world economy in plain English.
Central banks are trying hard to create inflation - but say there is little chance it will happen, yet many feel their cost of living is already rising, especially in emerging markets.
Who can fail to notice the rising cost of a steak, of chocolates, of apartments, of education, of healthcare or that prices are simply more volatile than in the past?
The public should be more involved in the most important questions of the day:
Is deflation or inflation the greater risk?
- Does inflation “fix” deflation?
Both forces are now locked in an epic struggle.
The conflicting pressures are now stressing and breaking the vital social contracts that exist between citizens and their states, setting in motion many seemingly unrelated outcomes:
The movement of manufacturing from emerging markets back to the US and the West
- Near misses between the spy planes, fighter jets and naval vessels of the US, Nato, Japan, Russia and China.
The one thing that can fix all this is innovation; acts of calculated risk taking that people undertake.
Are governments hostile or hospitable to these already impressive efforts to build tomorrow’s economy today?
Prediction, Malmgren says, is impossible.
But, by being alert to the many signals around us, anyone can be better prepared to navigate through the troubles to the treasures of the world economy.
