Guest – Jeffrey Dunetz

1) Wholesale PPI increase of 11.3% is WAY too high and will bleed into an already accelerating Inflation with rising input costs.

2) Biden says June Inflation “Unacceptably high”, but out of date. Is it possible it peaked – MAYBE?
The risk is wage price spiral.

3) Excluding Food and Energy, the Core CPI was at 5.9%. Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers characterized it as “Way too high and out of control”
Summers warned of this a year ago.

5) Biden trip to Israel – Jeffrey provides a history and contradiction of the difference how Trump and Biden have approached the Middle East and
the ramifications of policy changes. The success of the Abraham Accords and the relationship with Iran and Saudia Arabia.
Biden says “We will not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon”. Also claims he supports Abraham Accords.
