The Fed has raised interest rates, but what the Fed has not managed to do is get Congress to cut out or curtail spending in any meaningful way. We had about a 4 trillion-dollar federal budget prior to COVID, now over 6 trillion. That’s a 50% expansion from what it used to be, and there is no indication that anybody in Congress is willing to put that back to where it was. As a result, we’re not going to see inflation go away until that happens. Your host, Dennis Tubbergen, talks with Karl Denninger this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio about the economic challenges that lie ahead. It’s an enlightening conversation you’ll want to hear.
Mr. Karl Denninger is an American technology businessman, finance blogger, author, and political activist, sometimes referred to as a founding member of the Tea Party movement. Mr. Denninger is the author of the book Leverage: How Cheap Money Will Destroy the World. In the book, Denninger presents an inside look at how moneyed and powerful interests debase the dollar through the willful and intentional failure to honestly represent short and long-term mathematical truths that underlie all economic systems.
