    Corey, Central Banks need inflation to reduce the effect of the millstones of debt.

    They will print money, not to produce more inflation, which may be a side-effect, but because governments cannot raise taxes much and the cost of interest on debt has to be met.
    They might raise interest rates, but that is merely for propaganda purposes.

    They say they raise interest rates to slow inflation.
    They say they lower interest rates to stimulate the economy.
    Both of those statements are true.

    But in reality they are merely kicking the can down the road and praying the system does not collapse on their watch.
    Meanwhile profligate governments over-tax and over-spend, and march the peons steadily towards a collapse.
