Except for NA, things are getting bad almost everywhere. Japan is falling into recession again. EU is in trouble for a long time. And now some are predicting a 20% drop in Oil price if OPEC does not reduce production.

If this occurs prices/inflation should also drop considerably. Is this what Fairfax/Prem have been foreseeing for a long time?

I thought Ben Bernanke was printing money and debasing the dollar and raising inflation and generally sending America to hell incahoots with his communist buddy BHO! [/sarcasm] . Apparently Big Ben knew what he was doing with a program of monetary easing.

 

More seriously though I think most have expected EU to see deflationary pressures unless it initiates a program of monetary easing, which it is prohibited from doing...how that affects investments, no idea.
