Radio interview: Why big governments want a massive surge in inflation
US journalist Ron Myers interviews economist Christian Takushi on Western governments efforts to spark inflation (courtesy of Lifestyle Radio, France)
The G7 governments’ need of inflation is probably not so much the design of an evil-intended policy making elite, but rather a multi-decade process that we are all part of. Even the money printing that so many scholars criticise has been enabled by the refusal of investors, corporations and consumers to accept recessions and pain.
When I set up this hypothesis and test it, things fall into place without having to force arguments or use conspiracy theories.
- the recent spike in consumer prices is only the beginning
- Zero interest rates for over 11 years and the rushed Green transition led to under-investment across the global economy and to outdated gas/oil/coal facilities
- EU and US governments desperately need inflation to avert a debt default
- While central banks talk about fighting inflation, normalising interest rates and tapering, the truth is they are actually trying to achieve the opposite:
– Western governments are trying to spark inflation, while keeping interest rates at zero
– central banks promise tapering for 10 years, but they have no intention to do so: in fact interfering a little bit less in the bond market won’t do absolutely nothing to deflate the monster bubble they have created
– central banks talk about normalising interest rates for years, but they have no intention to do so – they would like to keep rates at zero for at least another five years
- Consumers, families and businesses should prefer for a potential difficult winter with energy shortages and inflation running much higher than what governments will concede

If one is really aware of all the trends in the realms of human and natural activity that are currently converging, it is very difficult to see this gigantic phenomenon as being organised by an elite or caused exclusively by intentional human action. Takushi gets invited by policy makers that want to hear this independent analysis. One of the officials that listened to a recent interview he gave in the USA actually said “Well, it seems to me this great convergence upon us can only be the work of a higher power, maybe the hand of God and the fulfillment of bible prophecies? Takushi believes that the great reset is the policy makers’ response to broad systemic failure .. amid the unprecedented convergence of geopolitical, economic and monetary trends.
