In turbulent economic circumstances, we’ve been asking one question: why is today’s inflation so different from the inflation back in the 1980s? David Stockman comes on the show to provide some direct perspective; as Ronald Reagan’s budget director and a former Michigan congressman, he pinpoints some of the factors that make our modern situation inherently different. Some of the contributors include bad policy, outsourcing a large share of the industrial economy, and the Fed misinterpreting data for decades. All of these things have led up to the monetization of debt, which traps us within a vicious cycle. Where does it end? Tune in to hear David’s thoughts on how this all happened and how we’ll (hopefully) get out of it.
