In December 2015, the Federal Reserve began raising interest rates, from an extended period of the lowest rates in 5000 years.
Often, higher rates act as a drag on gold, since gold does not pay interest.
Normally, rising interest rates would signal a strengthening Dollar.
A good way to shield yourself from the rising price inflation, and falling markets associated with higher interest rates, is by purchasing gold and silver.
Oil Inflation = Everything Inflation Often, one of the precursors to general inflation is oil price inflation.
For some businesses, this is a 100% increase in the wage costs to hire a new employee.
Disruptive Inflation = Great Time to be Protected If it seems as though the pressures on our costs of living are set to rise, it is because they are.
We are overdue for disruptive inflation, that often happens about every 30 years.
In 1945, inflation was 2%, and was 14% by 1947.
In 1972, inflation of 3% became 11% by 1974.
