Gold: The Endless War

We believe the premise of the commodity supercycle and hyperinflation is already baked into economic policies and financial markets. Bottlenecks, broken supply chains and chaos in global food markets have exposed structural shortages from commodities to food to workers to baby formula. Politicians and central banks are complacent, giving lip service to fighting inflation, fearful of a repeat of the Volcker years, although that is what is needed. Today’s high inflation is simply a foreshadowing of what is to come as the US and others monetize their national debt rather than pay it off. History shows that gold is a barometer of uncertainty. Today there is much, and gold is the best defense against inflation.
