But it looks like what is expected is no longer enough. The addict wants even more of the monetary drug. In this episode of the Friday Gold Wrap podcast, host Mike Maharrey talks about the Fed meeting and the market reaction.

Last month, the Federal Reserve moved its inflation goalposts. Is it setting us up for a return to the inflation of the 1970s?

During a speech at Jackson Hole, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell announced new policy guidance for how it addresses price inflation. In the past, the central bank has targeted a 2% inflation rate as measured by CPI. Now it will shift to “average inflation targeting.” In practice, the Fed will allow the CPI to run “moderately” over 2% “for some time” to balance out periods where it runs under that level. In effect, the central bank now has an excuse to let inflation run hot.

On Tuesday, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell testified before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. It was classic Fed “open mouth operations” as Powell tried to talk up the central bank’s policies and assure everybody that everything is under control. But is it, really?

Peter Schiff hit some of the highlights of Powell’s testimony during his podcast.

The Federal Reserve met this week and promised to keep pumping out monetary stimulus indefinitely. Meanwhile, the US government added another trillion dollars to the national debt in just 35 days even as the president and congressional leaders talk about more fiscal stimulus. In this week’s Friday Gold Wrap podcast, host Mike Maharrey talks about the ramifications of all this endless stimulus and reminds us that what can’t go on forever, doesn’t.

On Friday afternoon, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell did a Q&A session with Princeton economist Alan Blinder. Powell admitted that the central bank had “crossed a lot of red lines,” but insisted he was comfortable with the actions given “this is that situation in which you do that, and you figure it out afterward.”

In his podcast, Peter Schiff called it the Nancy Pelosi version of monetary policy. “We need to print the money to see where it goes.”
