In straightforward terms, let’s address a pressing concern: Inflation is here to stay, and the US deficit is spiraling out of control. Despite Treasury Secretary Yellen’s reassurances, there’s reason to be uneasy about the mounting US debt.

Facing the facts, $1 trillion-plus US budget deficits are becoming the norm, and federal projections paint a grim picture with deficits surpassing $1 trillion through 2033. In essence, the likelihood of witnessing a year with a US deficit below $1 trillion seems increasingly improbable.

As we step into Q1 2024, the US Treasury anticipates borrowing an additional $816 billion, primarily earmarked for deficit spending. The reality is that deficit spending is spinning out of control, with government expenditures projected to surge over the next three decades. Meanwhile, revenue is expected to stagnate, creating a significant gap and paving the way for a substantial deficit for the US government.

This financial scenario screams unsustainability. Adding to the alarm, the Producer Price Index (PPI) reveals a startling 58.8% surge in chicken egg prices, indicative of broader inflationary pressures. Market expert Jim Grant, editor of “Grant’s Interest Rate Observer” for the past four decades, boldly asserts that inflation is now a permanent fixture.

Grant’s perspective suggests that the Federal Reserve might delay rate cuts, challenging the expectations of those anticipating imminent policy shifts. According to Grant, Fed Chair Jerome Powell is likely to exercise caution, bearing in mind the Fed’s failure to identify the inflation surge in 2020 and 2021. Powell appears hesitant to declare premature victories, emphasizing the ongoing challenges posed by inflation.
