Now, a lot of folks have COLA (cost of living adjustments) adjustments to their salary each year to account for inflation. Some economists now are saying that the U.S. may be entering a deflationary period. So, instead of being 2.3% of whatever, inflation next year may be -5.0%. Does it mean that the salaries will be lowered by 5% :-)?On a serious note, this undescores the importance of not having any debts. In the deflationary period, debt could really easy destroy you financially.Vlad
