    to too little? Or are we in a situation, like Europe, where deflation is potentially a concern? Johnson: Deflation is always a potential concern because deflation is something that's very hard to get out of. And that's why it's such a scare word with economists because we are so used to seeing a virtuous cycle where people buy more things and so you need more people to make those things. That creates more income, more spending. But unfortunately when you have deflation , it goes the other way; people say, "Why should I buy that car today? It's going to be $500 cheaper the following month. I'm just going to wait." And so, then you need less production and that means fewer employees and less income, and you get to this terrible, vicious cycle with prices going down and continuing to go down. And it seems almost unstoppable, and that's really what happened during the depression. So, that's why deflation is important, but I don't think we are there yet. At 1.7% year-over-year, I think we're still okay. I think there are still a large number of categories, on a year-over-year basis anyway, that are still up--even though there wasn't much up in this particular month. Europe probably has a little more to worry about with deflation . I do think that there have actually been a couple of countries that have been in deflation for a couple of months over there.
