There are but two possible policy decisions that the Federal Reserve could make at this point and today we’ll explore the economic outcomes that will follow depending on which course of action the Fed would decide to follow. Join your host Dennis Tubbergen on this week’s Special Edition of Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio where he looks at the prospects for these two options, why each one is a bad choice, and how you might protect your dreams of a secure, stress-free retirement.

While inflation of the current magnitude hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s and early 1980s, we’re not likely to see the type of response from the Fed, vis-à-vis Volker raising interest rates to 20%. This week’s guest on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio is Simon Popple, who points out that central banks around the world have created tremendous amounts of currency with interest rates of 1 percent or less. Just raising the rates to 2 percent equates to a 100 percent increase in the cost of serving that debt. Listen in as your host Dennis Tubbergen talks with Mr. Popple about inflation and its effects on the commodities markets.
Mr. Simon Popple is the author of the Brookville Capital Intelligence Report. Mr. Popple started a newsletter with MoneyWeek called Metals & Miners and when they were acquired, he set up Gold Speculator with Jim Rickards.

We’re in a hyperinflation. The Fed is overreacting. Supply is not increasing. The government’s economic policies are not aimed at increasing supplies. Instead, their goal is to tame inflation by destroying wealth, and thereby dampening demand. Our guest this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio is technical analyst, Dr. Robert McHugh. Your host Dennis Tubbergen talks with Dr. McHugh about what the indicators are telling us and gets his forecast for the coming months. It’s an enlightening conversation you don’t want to miss.

“We’re in a historic time in markets, we’re about to see events that few have anticipated.” Our guest this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio is the brilliant market analyst, Michael Oliver. Your host Dennis Tubbergen talks with Oliver about how the extraordinary increase in money supply is driving commodities to new highs, consumer inflation to levels we haven’t seen in 40 years, and a deep recession that’s likely to follow. Listen now; you don’t want to miss this conversation.

We’re in the danger zone. The magic number for the 10-year treasury yield that we can’t go beyond is probably a little bit lower than it was in 2018. We can’t go much beyond that without the economy just tanking. And we are really not that far from that. Our guest this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio is Mr. John Rubino. He and your host, Dennis Tubergen, talk about the impact of the Russian invasion on Ukraine on already constrained supply chains, and what appears to be only “bad choices” left for the Fed and central banks around the world for controlling rapidly rising inflation.

No matter what they say, the Federal Reserve is actually pleased to see consumer price inflation so high because it’s one way of deflating the debt. Chances of success are, however, doubtful, according to this week’s guest, Murray Gunn, as bond markets are already demanding higher interest rates. Join your host Dennis Tubbergen on today’s episode of Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio for an insightful discussion and Mr. Gunn’s forecast for the coming months.

Inflation is now running at three and a half times higher than the Fed’s target rate of 2 percent. The Fed is clearly worried about this, and now appears poised to announce a doubling of the tapering at next week’s FOMC meeting in an effort to get the table set for interest rate hikes and normalization. On this week’s Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio show your host Dennis Tubbergen talks with guest Michael Pento about the repercussions the Fed’s tapering action is likely to have on the markets. Listen in to hear Mr. Pento’s predictions for the markets in the coming year.
