Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with former Fed insider Danielle DiMartino Booth.
Former Fed insider Danielle Booth says, along with a “bond market debacle,” the world will see inflation right along with it.
“Look at lumber prices, look at the cost of packaging, plastics, raw materials, the producer price index . . . is at a six-year high right now. It’s called the mother of all margin squeezes. Companies are suffering. We have inflation. We have very real inflation, and it is hitting corporate America between the eyes. We have seen inflation happening, and we continue to see it happening . . . Rental inflation is off the scale. . . . Inflation is up for 2018, and it has been up. We can have deflation and inflation at the same time.
If all of this debt that has built up, especially for households, if they are allocating more of their income to servicing debt, then they have fewer dollars to spend on other things. So, you are going to have deflation and inflation at the same time.”What does the regular guy on the street do? Booth says, “Figure out a way to have exposure to precious metals. Put your bubble vision on mute. You do not have to be invested in the market. That is a fallacy. Take what you have and pay down your debts.”
