No, the term DEFLATIONARY was not a typo. My point was that TIPS are required to pay at least face value at maturity, as I understand it, so if you hold till maturity there is no risk of getting less principal back due to DEFLATION. I tend to agree with you that inflation is probably NOT right around the corner, and rates could stay this low for a long time. But it just seems that at least a portion of long term fixed income fund would be best positioned in this environment in TIPS.
