INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.

Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Axel Merk.

On a recent Price of Business, Host Kevin Price visited with Axel Merk about the current economic environment.
This is not the 1970s, and we are told this time is different. It is correct that we may have a better understanding of what caused the Great Inflation in the 1970s, but politics may lead us down a similarly stagflationary path. Why? Because when faced with a supply shock, politicians tend to make matters worse, unleashing potentially unstable dynamics for years. More context at:  https://stgf.merkfunds.com/insights/2022-06-09
