I'm curious if you have seen the recent reports that inflation rates in the US, UK and Europe have shown signs of increase lately (such as at the link below). How would you explain the discrepancy this makes with the theory in the ATOM? Is it just statistical noise, likely to be temporary?

Yes, it is just statistical noise. Note that rising bond yields may cause a stock market correction that will screech things to a halt.

Also remember that $220B/month of central bank action is being done as we speak. Even this much is only causing a small blip...

If inflation is higher a year from now, *without* an increase in world QE, then I may have to revisit a few calculations.
