Jerome Powell announced yesterday the Fed will keep printing through quantitative easing until CPI inflation is above 2% comfortably. He said “we would like to perform” relating to keeping the CPI inflation above that level. The reason the Fed has this position, is that they have to devalue their debt. All $28 trillion of it. Which devalues our currency. This is also why the chapwood index was shutdown. So far in 2021, the CPI is at 1.4%. One reason the Fed struggles to get above the 2% level is the US economy is services and technology focused. Technology is very deflationary. Laptops, TV’s, cell phones are all getting cheaper and smaller. Yet the assets and items needed to run a household are not part of the CPI equation to calculate inflation. Thus, CPI and Chapwood Index are off by a factor of 10. Chapwood Index actually indexes everything required to live in the US. Here is a tweet and the last 2020 Chapwood Index chart before it was shut down, click here to view tweet.
So, assuming in 2021 inflation will be a good bit higher than the 2019 to first half of 2020 average (10.5%). It could easily average 12% or more this year, nationwide. Which means an investment must bring in 12% ROI to keep up with real inflation. Understanding that CPI is not accurate, is a major step in moving forward in your financial life with investing in scarce assets.
