14AprIn the 90′s Japan went through a horrific deflationary episode that kept the country with very low growth for almost a decade. Today the United States seem to experience something similar and the terms of deflation and liquidity trap of jumping back into the public. And in other posts I wrote about deflation and now I want to dedicate a few words to the concept of liquidity trap.

This aversion to investment causes recessions are more severe.
