Nobody could afford to pay the prices for crops that the farmers expected. Also, the debt which farmers already had would be much easier to pay off if the economy was going through inflation. (Inflation for example would be if an ordinary dollar bill's worth was increased to 2 dollars; deflation is when a dollar's value is decreased.) With deflation, the farmers must pay with more dollar bills, and during inflation, they would have to…

Deflation is a situation where the amount of the money supply is in a state of shrinking. It's a good thing if inflation is running high and out of control. In a normal economy, deflation means less money in circulation which causes the economy to suffer. Money is scarce and prices may be too high in relation to the money supply. This causes economic problems.
