Abstract Monetary and credit expansions have been the main tools used by the U.S. government and central bank to try and recover economically from the Great Recession of 2008. This paper expounds a radical criticism of these Keynesian policies, criticism developed by some contemporary economists of the Austrian School: the appropriate and fair remedy for this kind of crisis is not reflation but deflation.
