Merrill Lynch outlook for 2009

This is part 1 of 2 parts, the second one is here. The Merrill advisers think that the economy will be going more the way of Japan than into the inflation that we have felt was the most likely outcome, arguing deflation over inflation. We don’t agree with this outlook, but it is important to get a view from both sides of the argument. The credit collapse based recession/depression has been seen in the USA (1930’s) and also in Japan (1990’s), the question is which one is the current crisis most likely to resemble? Thought provoking, although not necessarily enlightening.
