On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates again despite the problems in the banking system. In this episode of the Friday Gold Wrap, host Mike Maharrey talks about the Fed’s inflationary efforts to paper over the problems in the financial system while still keeping up the pretense of an inflation fight. He says it’s like trying to thread a needle with rope.
In this episode of Metal Exchange, host Mike Maharrey chats with SchiffGold analyst Tony about the recent bank failures, the bailouts, the reaction of the markets and what might happen next. They conclude that if you’re betting that the Federal Reserve has everything under control, that’s probably a bad bet!
Peter appeared on Fox Business Claman Countdown to talk about the recent bank failures and the ensuing government bailouts. During the interview, they discussed how to invest in the current environment. Peter said that right now, gold is undervalued, but investors will bid up the price much higher when they come to terms with the reality of inflation.
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.
Friday gold wrap host Mike Maharrey has been saying something is going to break in the economy for months due to the Federal Reserve’s monetary tightening to fight price inflation. Last Friday, something broke when Silicon Valley Bank collapsed followed quickly by the demise of Signature Bank. It was the first crack in the dam. The Fed rushed in to plug the leak, but was it enough? In this episode of the podcast, Mike talks about the response to these bank failures and the possible ramifications.
There has been a lot of talk about central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) lately. Supporters tell you they will provide a safe, secure, convenient alternative to cash. But in this episode of the Friday Gold Wrap, host Mike Maharrey digs deeper and explains that CBDCs are actually about more government control. He also talks about how Jerome Powell talked and tanked the markets this week.
The markets still seem to believe the Federal Reserve can ratchet price inflation back down to 2% while bringing the economy to a relatively soft landing. In his podcast, Peter Schiff throws cold water on this hopeful narrative. He goes through the economic data that came out last week shows that all roads appear to lead to a hard landing and higher inflation.
Despite the hotter-than-expected CPI data for January, most people still seem confident that the Federal Reserve can win the inflation fight, drive CPI back to 2% in relatively short order, and then return to the easy monetary policy we all have come to expect. Friday Gold Wrap host Mike Maharrey does not share this optimism. In this episode, he outlines three reasons the Fed won’t win the inflation fight.
Why should you own gold in your investment portfolio? In this episode of the Friday Gold Wrap podcast, host Mike Maharrey talks about some reasons to own gold, including its historical wealth-preserving qualities and its role as a safe haven. He also talks about a new buzzword central bankers and politicians are using to make inflation seem less bad.
One of the characteristics of gold is that it preserves wealth in a world of constantly devaluing fiat currency.
Put another way, it preserves your purchasing power over time.
