Two weeks ago, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said it would be “premature” to conclude that monetary policy is sufficiently restrictive. This week, the Fed indicated rate cuts are on tap for next year. What a difference two weeks makes! In this episode of the Friday Gold Wrap, host Mike Maharrey breaks down this week’s Fed meeting and the status of the inflation fight.

Why do virtually all the mainstream pundits think the Federal Reserve has won the inflation fight?

Maybe it’s just wishful thinking. They want the Fed to win so it can go back to what it does best – creating more inflation with artificially low interest rates and quantitative easing.

Regardless, most of the mainstream punditry hyped the November CPI report as more positive news on the inflation front. The CNBC headline reflected the consensus – inflation “slowed” last month.

I experienced shrinkflation first-hand last weekend.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) drives markets and motivates policy, but it is nothing but speculation, estimation and wild guesses.

A recent “tweak” to the health insurance CPI reveals the formula is basically a scam.

Everybody seems convinced that the Federal Reserve has won the inflation fight, there will be no more interest rate hikes, and rate cuts are right around the corner. But as Friday Gold Wrap host Mike Maharrey reminds us, it’s not over until the fat lady sings. And she hasn’t sung a note. In this episode, he breaks down the latest CPI data and explains why the victory dance might be premature.
