USAGOLD note: Not a confidence builder to think that the fumbling Fed will require good luck to keep the economy afloat…… If the Treasury Secretary is right on this she will not take a great deal of comfort knowing that it will cost the Fed and the Biden government dearly. It has not been a good year for Janet Yellen thus far.
