Economist John Williams: Higher Inflation and a Coming Dollar Sell Off

JUN 27, 2018

Williams says everyone should hold a core position of physical gold and silver because they will work well as financial protection from a dollar sell-off and inflation.

Economist John Williams sees a declining economy and says, “This is what I see happening.  As the economy turns down, that’s a negative for the dollar.  Most importantly here, if the Fed backs off its tightening and moves back towards quantitative easing, and their minutes allow for it . . . they’re going to do that.  

Right now, the dollar is being supported by expectations of a higher interest rate.  As the fed moves back towards quantitative easing, you are very likely going to see a massive sell-off in the dollar.  The massive sell-off in the dollar becomes very inflationary.  This is a big problem right now for the Fed.”
