Deflation

Deflation is the opposite of inflation. Deflation is where prices and wages are falling. Economists generally agree it is preferable to have a low and predictable steady rate of inflation as this encourages people to engage in economic activities rather than just hoard cash which is what deflation tends to encourage. In summary deflation is a bad thing and often an early warning sign of an economic depression.
