An interesting thesis: instead of Central Banks setting inflation targets, they should set nominal GDP targets.
In current conditions, it makes sense. It stops the debt to GDP ratio spiralling out of control. It means that if inflation accelerates, policy would automatically tighten unless growth were also falling. And it means inflation short term will rise moderately. A good thing when debt to GDP ratios are so high.
Just for the record, here's Japan's lost decade, using industrial production (IP) as the indicator. I could use GDP, which has a modest upslope. But I don't have up to date data, and I'm busy as, so meh.
Disclaimer. After nearly 40 years managing money for some of the largest life offices and investment managers in the world, I think I have something to offer. These days I'm retired, and I can't by law give you advice. I do make mistakes, but I try hard to do my analysis thoroughly, and to make sure my data are correct. Remember: the unexpected sometimes happens. The expected does too, but all too often it takes longer than you thought it would.
The Goddess of Markets punishes (eventually) greed, folly, laziness and arrogance. No matter how many years you've served Her. Take care. Be humble. And don't blame me.
