USAGOLD note: We would like to believe that interest rates are now at their peak, but with inflation still revving its engines, that outcome is still up in the air, in our view. We know that peak interest rates are the current Wall Street default forecast. We also recall, though, that as the 1970s inflation spiral spun out of control, those in charge were forever forecasting its demise – a decade of official denial while prices and rates marched steadily higher.
