Gold Flirts With Record; It’s Not Just Russia
Gold cracked $2,000 again this week and made a run at the all-time record high. Some of this is clearly safe-haven buying due to the situation with Russia and Ukraine, and a lot of analysts think gold will fall back to earth once that situation resolves. But Peter Schiff doesn’t think so. In his podcast, he explains why gold would be going up even if Russia never invaded Ukraine… (Continue to full article)

Is the US Undermining the Dollar’s Credibility?
The credibility of the dollar is taking some self-inflicted blows. And make no mistake, the world is watching. Could this hasten the end of the greenback as the world’s reserve currency?

Gas prices are now nudging $8-a-gallon in Los Angeles, with drivers forming lines at Costco pumps across the US to fill up ahead of potential further increases.

Snaps taken at a Mobil gas station beside on the border of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood on Wednesday afternoon displayed eye-watering prices of $7.95 for premium gas.

More Gov’t Spending, More Inflation
Like night follows day, pumping trillions of dollars into the economy has yielded another bad inflation report.

We’ve been through the more specific numbers before, but suffice it to say that gas (38%) and groceries (8.6%) are still the main drivers in the rolling 12-month increase. Surprisingly, another big one, used cars, actually fell for the first time since September, though for the year those prices are up 41.2%.
