February 13, 2020

Chris Temple joins me to update us on the confirmation hearing for Judy Shelton and Chris Waller. As Chris points out Judy has some good ideas for how the Fed can actually help out the middle class however she is getting the run around from both the Democrats and Republicans. We also discuss her comments in the past regarding a gold standard and cryptocurrencies.

    It is disgusting that politicians are so polarized and corrupt that they place politics and their personal desires above working for the betterment of their country.
    Unbelievable they stress their own political self-interest.

          “I don’t claim to be in the mainstream of economists,” Shelton told lawmakers during her Thursday confirmation hearing.

          Shelton has spent decades advocating for tying the U.S. dollar to the value of gold in some capacity, an idea widely dismissed by policymakers and economists. She has also reversed her past criticism of low Fed interest rates and called for the central bank to weaken the dollar in response to foreign exchange rates, mirroring the switch made by Trump after he took office in 2017. -The Hill
