Can We See A Skyrocketing Of Gold Prices? Expert
- Published on May 15, 2019
- As the trade war between the U.S. and China escalates, all eyes are on how the economy will respond, and one expert said that gold will come out as a beneficiary.
Gary Wagner, editor of TheGoldForecast.com, said that as the U.S. prepares to enact 25% tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, gold could rally in the long-term due to the tariffs’ inflationary impacts.
“You have to look at what the tariffs will do in terms of consumer prices down the road. These tariffs are put onto the companies that are using those imports. However, they’re going to pass the additional costs back to the consumer,” Wagner told Kitco News. “So that means that the American consumer is going to be paying more, that would be inflationary, it would also set into motion the potential for a recession, but not necessarily a recession.”
