Last weekend, Jack Dorsey set the internet alight when he proclaimed, “Hyperinflation is going to change everything. It’s happening.” That kicked off a mighty debate involving Cathie Wood, Elon Musk, Jeff Booth and others. At the heart of it is the question of whether inflation or deflation is the more powerful force in the months and years to come.
