Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... why would the differentials spiral? I don't see the cause and effect positive feedback where a larger size of differential causes an increase in the differential.

Well, my question is why price levels would converge on a steady ratio. Assuming that all states are permitted to engage in fiscal policy sufficient to ensure full employment, I don't have a theory of inflation that permits me to state with any degree of confidence that price levels - rather than, say, inflation rates - will converge on a more or less fixed ratio.
