    Does today’s anti-Fed, anti-spending Tea Part really want deflation? Or are they mainly motivated by distrust/hatred of government?

    Perhaps I’m too committed to the view that voters of the late 19th century were more informed than those of the early 21st, but I have a sense that monetary politics was much more vivid then than it is now. If you asked the average Tea Partier why they wanted to stop “money printing” or balance the budget, I’m pretty sure you’d get a “confidence/growth” story, not a deflation story.

    Frank, you beat me to it by 30 minutes.

    The existence of the Internet gives us an opportunity to be much better informed than any prior generation, but unfortunately, it also gives us the opportunity to be much more propagandized.
