Jim Puplava: More Stagflation Coming? US Government Will Not Allow Deflation Because They Can’t Tax It

Wall St. For Main St., Released on 12/6/23

Jim has been hosting the popular Financial Sense Newshour interviewing thousands of top experts and reading hundreds of investment books and thousands of in depth research reports since the 1990s. During this 40+ minute interview Jason asks Jim Puplava about the damage and distortions caused by the Lag Effects after the Fed keeping rates high for 18 months in the real economy. Jim Puplava thinks that residential real estate people do not want to sell their homes for a higher mortgage but that this cycle the major issues are with office buildings and commercial real estate in the US. Jim talks about runaway spending in DC and the sheer math problem US government is especially with interest rates at current levels and many trillions of debt that needs to be refinanced. Government tax receipts can not afford deflation for a long period of time anymore with debt levels growing rapidly regardless of interest rates. To wrap up the interview Jim Puplava talks about investment opportunities in non ESG energy plays like uranium and oil and how many gold stocks are now deep value plays.

Good interview, but, the one thing that bothers me is that not one person promoting nuclear power discusses NUCLEAR WASTE = where to store it, how many years it takes to be rid of it. Decades ago, there was an article that France had stored nuclear waste in tanks they put in our oceans and that they were rusting out. Our tax dollars should be used to protect our waters and put recycling plants in every city and using that recycled material to create products/jobs — if you want to save our planet, you’d think this most basic thing would be done.
By the way, if Washington would stop wasting our tax dollars through war mongering and spending outside of our country, we would have enough money for social security and the repairs to our infrastructure.
Side Note = averaging what people receive from social security is not a true representation of what most people receive from it. Averaging high income earners with the typical income of the majority is so dishonest. Also, for every pittance COLA, Medicare goes up and significantly takes that increase immediately away.
