China’s Stock Melt Down to Spill Over to the U.S. Economy, We’re on Monetary Heroin | Peter Grandich

Warning Sign:

Junk bonds are yielding less than CPI



people haven’t been making i never
thought i’d see this in my career
daniella the other day so-called junk
bonds or
yield bonds we’re yielding lower than
the cpi
index it’s just unbelievable that
something we used to call junk we know
right now
is going to pay us less than what the
current inflation rate is
i just don’t conceivably can’t bring
uh to look at bonds in any way shape or
and quite frankly that’s a very scary
thing and maybe
i’ll end with this part the fixed income
market has been destroyed by the fed
and that’s the last part of my business
we i work with a group that specializes
in retirement and
business and exiting and estate planning
the retirement business is completely
up in the air there’s no longer any safe
principle secured investment out there
people have to now take
risk to their principal in order to
maintain some sort of
you know financial stability retirement
whatever it may be
and that’s something we never thought
was going to be when we started
in this business and that’s the thing
that’s not being discussed by wall
street but will
when eventually the market implodes and
then people realize that hey what how do
i do how do i keep maintaining my
because i can’t i can’t keep making 5 10
or twenty percent like it’s
like it’s simple if i may one final note
it is an extreme pleasure and honor to
be interviewed by you
and your listeners are
don’t recognize how fortunate and
blessed they are
but because i know when i see you do
other interviews that you’re on the
other side of the coin or
who you’re interviewing but you don’t
attack them you give them a chance to
share their views and in a nice way
you bring up points that kind of point
out where they may not be
and i have to tell you that’s a blessing
and gift and i just hope you keep it
means a lot to me peter thank you so

Brent Johnson On Whether Inflation is Transitory or Enduring

In this episode of On the Margin, Brent Johnson of Santiago Capital discusses his views on whether or not CPI inflation is transitory or here to stay. We cover Brent’s view on the most recent CPI and PCE prints, why consumer prices are ticking up, and whether or not he thinks we are headed for inflation or deflation. We also did a review of Brent’s famous “dollar milkshake theory,” the impact of fiscal and monetary stimulus on the dollar, and why he believes a strong dollar is dangerous for global markets.

“The Fed Has Lost Control” – John Williams Warns Of Hyperinflation In 2022

Economist John Williams, founder of, says the Federal Reserve has painted itself into such a tight corner with the economy it really has only two choices.  Williams says it comes down to “Inflation or Implosion.”

What would happen to the financial system if the Fed stopped printing massive amounts of money for stimulus and debt service?  Williams explains,

“You could see financial implosion by preventing liquidity being put into the system. The system needs liquidity (freshly created dollars) to function. Without that liquidity, you would see more of an economic implosion than you have already seen.  In fact, I will contend that the headline pandemic numbers have actually been a lot worse than they have been reporting.  It also means we are not recovering quite as quickly.  The Fed needs to keep the banking system afloat.  They want to keep the economy afloat.  All that requires a tremendous influx of liquidity in these difficult times.”

So, is the choice inflation or implosion?  Williams says, “That’s the choice, and I think we are going to have a combination of both of them…”

  I think we are eventually headed into a hyperinflationary economic collapse.  It’s not that we haven’t been in an economic collapse already, we are coming back some now. . . . The Fed has been creating money at a pace that has never been seen before.  You are basically up 75% (in money creation) year over year.  This is unprecedented.  Normally, it might be up 1% or 2% year over year.  The exploding money supply will lead to inflation.  I am not saying we are going to get to 75% inflation—yet, but you are getting up to the 4% or 5% range, and you are soon going to be seeing 10% range year over year. . . . The Fed has lost control of inflation.

And remember, when the Fed has to admit the official inflation rate is 10%, John Williams says, “When they have to admit the inflation rate is 10%, my number is going to be up to around 15% or higher.  My number rides on top of their number.”

Right now, the inflation rate is above 11%.  That’s if it were calculated the way it was before 1980 when the government started using accounting gimmicks to make inflation look less than it really is.  The number cuts out all the accounting gimmicks and is the true inflation rate that most Americans are seeing right now, not the “official” 4.25% recently reported.

Williams says the best way to fight the inflation that is already here is to buy tangible assets.  Williams says,

“Canned food is a tangible asset, and you can use it for barter if you have to. . . . Physical gold and silver is the best way to protect your buying power over time.”

Gold may be a bit expensive for most, but silver is still relatively cheap.  Williams says, “Everything is going to go up in price.”

When will the worst inflation be hitting America?  Williams predicts,

“I am looking down the road, and in early 2022, I am looking for something close to a hyperinflationary circumstance and effectively a collapsed economy.”
