Gold surged to a new record high of $2135 early Sunday morning before pulling back sharply Monday. In this video, Peter Schiff explains why this is a buying opportunity.
After setting the record, gold quickly sold off and consolidated, dropping over $100 back to around $2,020. Some people see the quick selloff as a bearish sign. Peter said he doesn’t think so.
From time to time, Peter Schiff hosts Q&A sessions with premium subscribers to his podcast covering a wide range of investing and economic topics. In this video clip, Peter publicly answers eight questions on gold, silver, and general investment strategies.
All eyes are on the Federal Reserve, and people are wondering, what will it do next? The messaging coming from the central bankers is that they will need to keep interest rates higher for longer. But is that possible given the economic conditions and all of the debt in the economy?
Investment and economics writer Jim Grant appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box to discuss the Fed’s inflation fight and its impact on the economy. He said we ask too much of the central bankers. After all, they are only human.
Good news! The recession is off!
For months, economists predicted the Federal Reserve’s rate hikes to fight price inflation would spin the US economy into a recession. But there is a growing consensus that the central bank can slay price inflation while guiding the economy to a “soft landing.”
Economists Bob Murphy and Jonathan Newman say, “Not so fast!”
In the aftermath of the failure of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, many rushed to blame their demise on a lack of regulation. In particular, they focused on the fact that these banks were not required to undergo a Federal Reserve stress test.
Indeed, small and midsize banks are exempt from the stress test requirement. Did that lead to the current banking crisis?
Peter Schiff recently appeared on Brighteon.com with Mike Adams to talk about the failure of SVB and Signature Bank, the bailouts and the potential ramifications. During the interview, Peter explained the difference between SchiffGold and a lot of the other gold companies out there.
A lot of people seem to think that if the Fed had just started fighting inflation a little earlier, we wouldn’t have seen the rapidly rising prices that continue today. The mistake, they say, was thinking inflation was transitory. But as Peter Schiff has pointed out, this problem didn’t start last year, or even with the pandemic. This problem was decades in the making.
And at the root of the problem was year after year of easy money. Wall Street was drunk on cheap money for a decade and it is ultimately going to end in another financial crisis.
Economist Nouriel Roubini says Federal Reserve is going to “wimp out” on the inflation fight and that will lead to a dollar crash.
Roubini is the Professor Emeritus at the Stern School of Business, New York University. He recently appeared on Bloomberg Markets and Finance to talk about threats to the global economy.
Roubini predicted the housing bubble would pop in an IMF position paper in 2006. When asked if we were there again, he emphatically said, “Yes.”
