Beware Of Falling Prices [CNN]

From CNNMoney.com
Only a few months ago, inflation was the main worry of many economists. But falling prices for the raw materials of many industries, including lumber, have set off deflation warning bells for some economists, who worry that they could signal another global economic downturn.

If we start seeing deflation in the CPI, I'll be sure not to mention how 0.50% should be considered a good deposit rate due to deflation.
