Jerome Powell is Wearing Concrete Boots with David Stryzewski

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Financial expert David Stryzewski analyzes the alarming trends revealed in April’s Producer Price Index (PPI) report. The PPI has risen by 0.5%, signaling persistent and escalating inflationary pressures, a sharp contrast to the previous month’s 0.1% decline. This marks the first instance since April 2022 that PPI inflation has risen for three consecutive months, showcasing a trend of sticky inflation. David explains that the year-over-year rise in wholesale costs, which accelerated to 2.2%, points to a future where inflation could significantly overshoot the Federal Reserve’s 2% target. The big picture suggests a troubling scenario: inflation is stubbornly high, and the Federal Reserve appears to be losing its battle against it. David warns of the Federal Reserve’s potential move to cut rates to prevent a banking crisis, amidst conditions where “higher for longer” interest rate policies seem increasingly likely.
