Peter Schiff recently appeared on Tucker Carlson to talk about inflation, the economy, and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s admission that she was wrong about inflation. There’s an economic hurricane on the horizon and Peter said it’s going to be a Cat 5.
In the spring of 2021, the Fed was still insisting spiking inflation was “transitory.” Fast forward one year. Inflation is as hot as ever.

Today, Powell admits the Fed was wrong, but claims everybody else made the same mistake.
