The government gravely underestimates the national rate of inflation via the CPI, a number plagued with bias and statistical manipulation. It is universally assumed that the government’s rate of inflation is accurate, but it simply isn’t… First time guest on this week’s Retirement Lifestyle Advocates Radio, Mr. Ed Butowsky, talks with your host Dennis Tubbergen about this blind acceptance of CPI; one of the main reasons over 50% of U.S. citizens are reliant on the government entitlement programs that are bankrupting our country.

Despite what you’ve heard in the media over the last 20 plus years, even during the Trump administration, the U.S. economy has been in decline, and it’s going to get worse.

The CPI you see published today no longer represents the real out of pocket expenditures incurred by most Americans.

Your host, Dennis Tubbergen, talks with Mr. Mcleod about the economic decline, the recent elections, the Fed’s easy credit policy, and much more!
