Scott Sumner has rechristened the URL on his blog. (Apparently his inflationist views were being confused by too many people with Bentley automobiles.) He now has a “deep thoughts” post up where he asks, “And are there negative bubbles? If so, what are they called? And why don’t people talk about them?”
