Peter Schiff: Fed Goes All-In on Stimulus (Video)
In his most recent Gold Videocast, Peter Schiff takes on San Francisco Federal Reserve President John Williams’ new monetary prescription for the ailing US Economy. Williams sees the current trend of slow economic growth as a “new normal”. His plan calls for raising the target inflation rate beyond its current 2% value. But how does Williams want to raise inflation? With a simple sleight of hand trick that no longer uses real GDP growth (i.e. adjusted for inflation), but uses nominal GDP growth.
Essentially, Williams wants to use a less accurate (and conveniently higher) number as the standard for measuring the economy’s “real” growth. It’s the policy equivalent of removing the gold standard. Once again, the government substitutes something real for something fake. The Fed can now add fantasy numbers to their magician’s box, which they use to hide the real recession we’re in.
