English term or phrase: negative starting point
Deflation is a continual decrease in price levels (e.g. Japan). Deflation has a negative effect on the entire economy (avoidance of consumption as a ***negative starting point***), which is why the national banks place a lot of emphasis on avoiding deflation.
