On Line Essays by Reisman

  • The Anatomy of Deflation. An explanation of what deflation is, including why falling prices caused by increased production are not deflation, what causes deflation, and  the monetary system needed to avoid it.
  • The Stock Market, Profits, and Credit Expansion. The plunge in the stock market is feeding a wave of anti-capitalist rhetoric. This analysis, in contrast, shows that capitalism and the profit motive dramatically raise the standard of living and that boom and bust are not a necessary feature of capitalism but the result of government-sponsored credit expansion.  (See also Reisman's earlier piece, from August 1999, "When Will the Bubble Burst?," in which he predicted exactly the kind of stock-market bust now going on.)
