DU economist people, will we see inflation or deflation

?

So many people are without work the price is kind of have to come down if you want anybody to buy anything.

But they’re just going be printing money (I guess?) So that’s got to be inflationary. What do you guys think?

1. I'm not an economist, but heard anecdotally that some home lenders think

housing prices will drop. Or that the bubble will correct, at least.

2. TIPS market suggest inflation

I passed on an opportunity to purchase at about .7% + inflation yield ( 10 year I think). The rates have now gone negative. The 15 year TIPS mutual fund is up 20%.

3. I am certainly not an economist

Here is the opinion of a plumber:

If you flood a market with anything, oil, apples or dollars, the value of the item goes down. The government is printing money like there is no tomorrow. When the value of the almighty dollar goes down, it takes more of it to buy a product. That is inflation.
