FSN inflation vs. deflation debate updates

We recently called your attention to the inflation vs. deflation debates aired on the Financial Sense Newshour.

Some of the interview guests in the debate included Mike "Mish" Shedlock, Daniel Amerman, and Marc Faber. Earlier broadcasts included inflation vs. deflation arguments from Bob Prechter at Elliot Wave and Peter Schiff.

FSN host Jim Puplava recently concluded the debate series by replaying segments of these broadcast interviews, and offering his own views on the likelihood of a future US inflationary or deflationary environment. I won't hesitate to add that, in spite of Puplava's partiality to the inflation side of the debate, you'll be hard pressed to find a fairer or clearer treatment of these arguments.

If you caught any of the earlier broadcasts, or would just like an overview of this broadcast debate, check out this excellent macro overview (part one, part two) on the great inflation vs. deflation debate.
