Falling prices are a reward for capitalism. They make wages more valuable, they make savings more valuable. Well, the argument is, if prices are falling, nobody is going to buy anything, they will just be waiting for lower prices. Of course, that is absurd. We all have cellphones, we all have laptop computers, we all have plasma TVs. The prices for those items are falling all the time. That does not stop people from buying them. In fact it encourages people to buy them.
