The Fed has moved the inflation goalposts.

The central bank will no longer focus on keeping a lid on inflation. In his podcast, Peter Schiff said this policy will simply speed up the destruction of the dollar and the economy.

Jerome Powell announced the new policy during his speech in Jackson Hole last Thursday. In the past, the central bank has targeted a 2% inflation rate as measured by CPI. Now it will shift to “average inflation targeting.” In effect, the Fed will allow the CPI to run “moderately” over 2% “for some time” to balance out periods where it runs under that level.

Peter Schiff has been saying that the economic problems we face weren’t caused by the coronavirus pandemic — at least not directly. We were already in deep trouble long before COVID-19 arrived on the scene. In this special episode of the Friday Gold Wrap podcast, host Mike Maharrey takes us on a journey back through time and lays out exactly how the Federal Reserve and government policies got us here and how the “cure” for the economic meltdown caused by government lockdowns is really just more of what made the economy sick in the first place.

We’ve written extensively about the “war on cash.”  Government officials and academics offer all kinds of plausible rationals for moving toward a cashless society. Most of them involve consumer convenience and the ability to battle drug dealers and big-time criminal organizations. But make no mistake, governments love the idea of eliminating cash for more a more sinister reason — it would make it possible for them to track every single purchase you make. And it would also allow them to exercise a tremendous amount of control over individuals.

Last month, gold broke its all-time record price. As we have explained, to really understand what’s going on, you need to flip the equation. Dollars are at an all-time record low compared to gold. Simply put, the recent surge in gold prices is all about currency debasement.

We were on this path long before coronavirus reared its ugly head. After all, this gold bull market started back in 2015. But the government response to the pandemic put the process in hyperdrive. In March, the Federal Reserve embarked on a policy of money printing to infinity and beyond. And there is no end in sight. The Fed is apparently even willing to turn the other way the inevitable result of printing money – price inflation – begins to become apparent in the economy.

New home sales blew away expectations in July, coming in at the highest level since 2006. A lot of people take this as a sign of a strengthening economy. Peter Schiff begs to differ. In his podcast, he argued that surging homes sales are actually a sign of a weak economy.

Single-family new home sales rose 14% between June and July to an annual rate of 901,000, according to Commerce Department data. Sales were up 36% on a yearly basis.

Peter Schiff recently spoke at the “virtual” Los Vegas Money Show and explained why we are near the endgame for the dollar.

Peter opened up his talk speculating that the Money Show could be close to the end of its run.

I think the money that most people have, or at least what they think is money isn’t going to be money much longer.”

It was a volatile week in the gold and silver markets after last week’s correction with big swings up and down. Early this week, gold enjoyed a rally back above $,2000 after we learned Warren Buffett has gotten into gold. In this week’s Friday Gold Wrap podcast, host Mike Maharrey talks about Buffett’s move into gold and what it means and why we shouldn’t worry about big corrections during this bull run. He also highlights some of the economic data that makes him less than optimistic about a quick recovery.

When gold moved above its all-time record price last month, we pointed out that it’s easier to understand gold’s record-breaking move up if you look at it from the other side of the equation. The dollar is now at its all-time low compared to gold.

In simple terms, the dollar is losing value and dollar debasement is driving up the price of gold.
