Protect Your Savings: Central Banks, the Inflation Fallacy, and the Mountain of Debt

Posted on June 26th, 2017.

Since the end of the financial crisis, or some would say that since we entered the eye of the storm, central banks all over the world continued to pursue “extreme” measures to prop up the world’s economy and avoid a deflationary spiral.

1.            Cryptocurrencies Still in Correction Mode Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Ripple are both still well below their all-time highs following a choppy sideways week for the crypto market.
