The sources of deflation are not a mystery. Deflation is in almost all cases a side effect of a collapse of aggregate demand--a drop in spending so severe that producers must cut prices on an ongoing basis in order to find buyers.Tunnel vision. Like an alcoholic, who can only focus on one thing on the entire planet: his next drink.

Forget the fact that his entire life is going down the toilet. Forget the fact that it's the alcohol that's killing him.
He is literally INSANE.
