    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article? What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    My above Article has been declined twice and the feedback I get via Mail is just a standardized message, so I really don't get what I'm missing here

    Thank you
    Here is my article: How to Hack Inflation & Interest Rates to Buy Stuff with Borrowed Money (must be signed in to view)

      Hi there,

      Firstly, you don't buy things 'on debt', you buy them 'on credit'. The debt is what you are left with after you have been given the credit to purchase the item.

      Inflation is not depreciation. It is the increase in cost due to all manner of factors, such as shortages, interest rate rises, etc. Depreciation, in accounting terms, is the falling value of a tangible item, due to age or wear, such as a vehicle or computer.

      So, given these basic errors, you need to go through and fact-check every single statement you make.

      There are also many grammatical and formatting issues which need to be addressed.

      I suggest you spend some time reading the articles in the Learning Center, which are themselves, good examples of how to layout and present an article for HubPages.

      Click Help, top right of any page to navigate to the Learning Center.

      Good luck.

        thanks for you feedback, I will adapt those things

        Regarding the Content: I totally agree with your statement on what Inflation is, that's how I've described it as well.
        "Inflation is simply the depreciation of money over time."
        Due to the Increase of the goods the Currency loses purchasing power, hence lowers it's Value

        I'm not a native english speaker, so my phrasing is of course not as good as it can get, but I'm trying to improve

          But it isn't, "Inflation is simply the depreciation of money over time." You are wrong to state it like that. It's true that out-of-control inflation might lead to the lowering of the value of currency but not always. In a growing economy a certain amount of inflation is a good thing.

          Inflation is applied to the costs of goods and services, not to currency.

          If you make erroneous statements like that, your article has no credibility.
