Will Powell Pivot as Currency Wars Escalate?

On this episode of Radio Rothbard, Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop discuss Jay Powell’s exercise in Fed-speak this week. While political pressure mounts at home for the Fed to turn dovish, growing international challenges to the dollar’s dominance mount. Ryan and Tho also examine the Saudi’s willingness to question the petrodollar and recent rumblings down south of a South American monetary union.
