Inflation is 'accelerating', will last until 2026; This is the only way to crush it – Art Laffer

With inflation at 9.1%, former Reagan advisor Arthur Laffer, Founder and Chairman of Laffer Associates, joined Kitco News to discuss what it takes to rein in prices. He said that Federal Reserve policy alone won’t help, and that fiscal policy plays an important role. Laffer spoke with Michelle Makori, Editor-in-Chief and Lead Anchor at Kitco News, at the FreedomFest 2022 Conference in Las Vegas.
