Jean-Francois Tardif: inflation vs. deflation

Canadian hedge fund manager (retired), Jean-Francois Tardif made a very interesting analogy concerning inflation and deflation in his recent Agoracom conference presentation.

If you happened to check in with us on Monday, you'll know that we found some worthwhile presentations in this online conference archive.

Tardif's talk is no exception, and he offers the view that the much talked about inflation & deflation scenarios are equally valid. JF sees inflation vs. deflation as a nine round boxing match with either side winning alternating rounds over a longer-term period.

If you want to jump straight to his views on the inflation & deflation scenario, skip ahead to slide 5 in Tardif's online presentation. Food for thought.
