A new opinion piece at MarketWatch rips into the corrupt policies of the Federal Reserve. Al Lewis cites recent analysis that estimates the Fed’s inflationary policies have cost American savers more than $750 billion since the 2008 financial crisis. Last year alone, savers lost more than $120 billion in purchasing power. What’s one of the best ways to protect your savings? Physical gold and silver.
“Our financial system is so corrupt you might say that a fish rots from the Fed.
How else can one describe a regime that punishes savers and rewards borrowers and speculators for years on end? Our central bank is essentially taking billions of dollars a year from average Americans, who are still struggling to get by in a bombed-out economy, and it is giving it — yes, giving it — to the very banks that helped cause the 2008 financial crisis in the first place.”
