Gary Shilling weighed in with his recommendations for 2011 in John Mauldin’s latest Outside the Box newsletter. Since the early 2000’s, Shilling has been one of very few financial commentators staunchly in the deflation camp – and his 2011 picks reflect his belief that deflation, not inflation, will rule the years ahead.

You can run, you can rally on low volume, but ultimately you can’t hide from deflation! Today the Deflation Bird digested and ultimately pooped on the lame FOMC statement issued yesterday.  It will take more than that, says our feathered friend, to stave off the ravages of deflation.

It’s looking more and more apparent by the day that deflation is returning to the financial markets – and with a vengeance. Yes sir, deflation is back – it’s out to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and apparently it has just run out of gum! The reflation trade is being exposed as the fraud we […]

Regular readers know that while we are more sympathetic to the deflation argument, at least in the near term, we keep our ears open to the inflation camp as well.
