The "Perfect" Market for Gold

Kitco News’ David Lin caught up with Frank Holmes on a variety of topics including gold, airlines, Fed policy and more. Frank says “it’s a perfect” market for gold due to rapid money printing and higher than stated inflation. To fight the pandemic economic slump, central banks globally are printing money, which Frank says will cause currency debasement and make gold as an asset more attractive. Another factor pushing gold higher is inflation. Official consumer price index (CPI) numbers say inflation is at just 1 percent, but Frank believes it is much higher, as much as 8 percent.
