Lobo Tiggre: The Fed Isn’t Done Breaking Things

In this episode of Palisades Gold Radio, we welcome back Lobo Tiggre, author and publisher of, about his predictions for the economy in 2024. Tiggre acknowledges that there were signs of a recession in various sectors in 2022, but low interest rates and labor hoarding prevented it from fully materializing. However, he believes that a recession will soon become undeniable, possibly in the first half of the year, based on indicators such as the declining trend in job openings. Tiggre expects a softer landing for the economy only if indicators prove to be wrong and the overall health of the economy is stronger than believed.

He also discusses the de-dollarization trend, which he sees as a long-term mega trend that will eventually lead to the downfall of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. He notes that de-dollarization is already happening but expects it to take decades to have an impact on his investment decisions. Tiggre believes that gold will continue to perform well, especially in a recessionary environment, and advises investors to focus on undervalued gold stocks, particularly developers building their first mine. He draws a parallel with his successful bullish call on uranium, where strong fundamentals and positive technical indicators eventually led to a rise in prices. While Tiggre acknowledges the risks involved, he remains bullish on gold and sees potential for significant price increases.
