Book Description: Is Inflation Ending: Are You Ready? A Sober Look At the Prospects for a Decline in Inflation by A. Gary Shilling and Kiril Sokoloff (Hardcover - Mar 1983)
Shilling didn't know it but he was documenting the unique disinflationary period of the birth and development of the FIRE Economy, born in 1980 and R.I.P. 2009. In a similar vein, current deflation commentators are inadvertently mistaking the disinflationary end of the FIRE Economy with the beginning of a deflation spiral ala 1930 to 1933.
