Fed People Saying Stuff: SchiffGold Friday Gold Wrap July 7, 2023
Despite doing nothing at the June meeting, Federal Reserve officials continue to talk tough about fighting inflation. The anticipation of another rate hike created headwinds for both stocks and gold this week. But Friday Gold Wrap host Mike Maharrey thinks something is amiss. In this episode, he talks about the disconnect between the central bankers’ rhetoric and their actions. Are they clueless or running scared? This week, he also talks about another big jump in the national debt and the latest on central bank gold buying.
