It's Called DEFLATION Folks

• Posted by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker
Never mind the man behind the curtain, who won\'t utter the word: The Labor Department reported Thursday that productivity jumped at an annual rate of 6.9 percent in the fourth quarter, even better than an initial estimate of a 6.2 percent growth rate. Unit labor costs fell at a rate of 5.9 percent, a bigger drop than the 4.4 percent decline initially estimated. In the real world this means: Work harder and get more done. Get paid less. Suck it up, don\'t complain, or you\'re fired.
