The Federal is supposedly on the path to tighter monetary policy, although it is currently still pouring gas on the inflation fire. The central bank says it is tapering its asset purchases even now, and will eventually begin shrinking its balance sheet. It also plans to raise interest rates.

Peter Schiff has been saying the Fed can’t do what it claims it’s going to do. Economist André Marques agrees. He says the Fed is trapped. It doesn’t really have room to raise rates or taper.

Inflation is running rampant. Even Jerome Powell has been forced to acknowledge that this bout of rising prices isn’t “transitory.” As Peter Schiff put it, there is no ceiling on inflation.

The Federal Reserve has sped up its timetable for tapering its asset purchases and raising interest rates. Many in the mainstream have called this a “war” on inflation, but the central bank is bringing a pea shooter to a bazooka fight. A real fight against inflation would require interest rate hikes that would crash a US economy built on debt.

With the “transitory” inflation narrative dead and buried, the powers that be have shifted to a new tactic to deflect their responsibility for rising prices – blame somebody else.

Elizabeth Warren recently claimed that rising prices were due to “price gouging” by “greedy” corporations. But the evidence says otherwise. In fact, producer prices have risen faster than consumer prices. That means businesses have only passed on some of their higher costs to consumers. If anything these “greedy” corporations have allowed consumers to gouge them.

You’re being squeezed by inflation. You can’t find what you’re looking for at the store due to widespread shortages. And when you do find what you need, it takes forever to check out of the store because the labor market is completely out of whack.

But really, the problem is with you. Your expectations are just too high – at least according to Washington Post columnist Micheline Maynard.

It’s become increasingly hard to hide the inflation problem. Even without the sizzling hot CPI numbers, the average American experiences rising prices every day at the grocery store and the gas station.

With it becoming harder and harder to blow inflation off as transitory, apologists for the central bank and the federal government have shifted to a new strategy — try to convince you that inflation is good for you.

A Peter Schiff put it, double-barrel inflation is locked and loaded. But after yet another month of hotter thane expected CPI, the central bankers at the Federal Reserve continue to insist that inflation is “transitory” and blame it on everything except their monetary policy.

These central bankers lack any sense of self-awareness. If they did, they would recognize, as Ron Paul does, that their policies are a complete and utter failure.

When we talk about “inflation,” most people immediately think about rising prices. That is indeed one of the effects of inflation. But that isn’t inflation itself. Properly defined, inflation is an increase in the money supply. In fact, that used to be the standard definition of inflation. Over time, the government has changed the definition. Today, pretty much everybody defines inflation as rising prices.
