I guess I don't understand deflation or your post. It seems to me deflation is when both "things" and "services" (as in wages for example) are decreasing in their value. i.e. Prices per item decline.Well if an I bond prevents the loss of capital, how can that be bad compared to owning "things" or stocks? Twenty years ago land and everthing else in Japan was higher priced then now. As I understand it, there are many pieces of property with mortgages greatly in excess of the property value. If on the other hand people had a way to keep the same number of Yen, they would be better off then have a Yen demoniated physical asset.What in my understand is in error?GordonAtlanta
