Carl WeinbergSome analysts have gone on record calling for a global deflation as soon as next year. That is an aggressive call that implies a catastrophic economic collapse. This is not part of High Frequency Economics' forecast. Some of these theories start with an uncontained failure of the two U.S. GSEs, Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac, which would have a calamitous impact on global credit markets. As High Frequency Economics' Chief U.S. Economist Ian Sheperdson writes in today's Daily Notes on the United States, a catastrophic meltdown of these two institutions is unthinkable and will not be allowed by Congress.
