O John Cassidy tem um artigo muito interessante na revista The New Yorker sobre a decisão de Mário Draghi (BCE) e o combate à deflação. Fica aqui um trecho, para abrir o apetite. Vale a pena ler o artigo na íntegra.

The value of outstanding debts, such as mortgages and car loans, gets bigger every year. And governments and central banks find it a mighty struggle to revive the economy. That, in a nutshell, is what has happened to Japan, once a powerhouse of the world economy, during the past twenty years.
