In the 1970s, when Paul Volcker was cranking up interest rates to kill off inflation, he could do that because the size of the federal debt was only about 30% of the GDP at the time. Today, the federal debt is about 130% of GDP. No matter what Jerome Powell’s intentions are, even if he has the same fortitude as Volcker had in fighting inflation, he just doesn’t have the tools. In fact, he has nothing he can really do. Our guest this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio is Brien Lundin. Join your host, Dennis Tubbergen, as he and Brien discuss the fate of the dollar as the reserve currency, an international return to a gold standard, and the current state of world markets.
Brien Lundin is the President and CEO of Jefferson Financial, editor and publisher of Gold Newsletter, a publication that has ranked among the world’s leading precious metals and resource stock advisories since 1971 and is also the host of the famed New Orleans Investment Conference, the world’s oldest and most respected gold investment event.
