Chris Irons: Could China’s Credit Crunch Spark the Final Meltdown?

Tom welcomes firebrand Chris Irons back to the show to discuss the Fed and the overall status of the financial system.

Chris notes that inflation and the Fed are topics that the media tends to ignore. The two percent inflation target is an arbitrary figure, and it serves as a way for the Fed to steal from consumers without them realizing. Inflation is profoundly detrimental as it continuously lowers one’s purchasing power without them noticing. We should not be raising the debt ceiling as it does nothing to address our bad habits, and address our reckless behavior.

Chris also discusses the recent rating downgrade by Fitch, which signals a troublesome time ahead for U.S. sovereign debt. Government officials are voicing their complaints about the downgrade, but none of them seem to be thinking about fiscal responsibility.

Chris often notices when the signal for a market top or bottom appears, as the mainstream media offers contradicting headlines. Everyone believes the Fed will be successful in controlling inflation while they are oblivious to the potential deleveraging event. Hence, when the investment community aggressively sells off, he sees it as an opportunity to go all in on precious metals.

Turning his attention to China, he remains concerned about increasing tensions around Taiwan. He wonders how the US would respond, given their current financial state.

Lastly, he goes over the various misleading narratives surrounding Covid treatment that have now been debunked.
