Tariffs and Inflation Are Taxes - Ep 961

56m | May 17, 2024

In this episode of The Peter Schiff Show, Peter discusses the recent milestone where the Dow Jones industrial average traded above 40,000 for the first time, yet closed down on the same day. He elaborates on nominal vs. real terms of value, emphasizing the importance of measuring stock markets in terms of gold to gain an accurate perspective on value over time. Schiff critiques the government's role in inflating the economy, creating an illusion of prosperity while diminishing the dollar's value, and further explores how tariffs and fiscal policies contribute to the U.S. economic challenges, including growing debt and inflation. The episode also features wider discussions on the impact of inflation data, global economic indicators, and the Federal Reserve's stance on interest rates and its inability to control inflation effectively.
