Peter Schiff: Biden Lies Again On Inflation

• Schiff Gold

This week on the Peter Schiff Show, Peter covers a week of dismal economic reports. Both jobless claims and consumer sentiment came in worse than expected last week, with both figures missing predictions by a wide margin. Peter also discusses public statements made by both Joe Biden and Donald Trump on the nature and origin of inflation.

The Fed faces a difficult choice. Does it prioritize fighting inflation or keep rates low for consumers?

"If Powell looks at these numbers and decides we need to raise rates because consumers are worried and they're pessimistic about inflation, that's going to make the high-interest rate problem worse. Consumers are upset about both high inflation and high interest rates. So how is the Fed going to do something about that? Because if it raises interest rates, it's going to make that problem worse. And if it doesn't raise interest rates, or cuts interest rates, it's going to make the inflation problem worse."
