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.
