Deflation: No ordinary accident

Around the globe, central banks fear deflation will be almost as big a risk as inflation for the next couple of years. It's not only the GFC that's brought the world to this point.

Global markets are still coming to terms with the fact that inflation is dead. For investors, the environment of entrenched low inflation means that average annual returns above 5 per cent will look terrific. While inflation stays low – or as seems likely, falls further – annual investment returns under 5 per cent will be more likely than not.
