Is The Bank of Canada’s 50-basis-point June 1 hike a done deal? Will It Cool Consumer Price Inflation? Yes and No, It depends on What Canada Imports – May 28, 2022,
If you’ve listened to the World Economic Forum, they have an “it’s for the greater good of humanity” ideology, meaning that as their serfs, we need to suffer to stop their political science narrative of climate change. Justin Trudeau and his cabinet are members of the World Economic Forum. Klaus Schwab has openly talked about his admiration for Canada’s current Prime minister Justin Trudeau.
As it stands today in Canada, Justin Trudeau has a lot of support from people in his party, many of them are willing to sell their souls to him, having little interest in the destruction he does to the country, they continue to support him and his cabinet blindly, which is something to pay close attention to because, one could argue that Canada’s sovereignty is already at risk, based on Trudeau’s associations with the World Economic Forum.

This admiration for Justin Trudeau doesn’t stop with the leaders of the World Economic Forum. The Bank of Canada governor Tiff Macklem has bought up a lot of Justin Trudeau’s debt, it should be noted that some of the money Trudeau borrowed hasn’t even been SPENT yet, which is one of the reasons MP Pierre Poilievre who is hoping to lead the Conservative Party of Canada, has threatened to fire Tiff Macklem if elected Prime Minister.
It’s one thing for Justin Trudeau to imagine all sorts of spending ideas, it’s something else when the Bank of Canada buys all of Trudeau’s spending plans. I bring this up, because, there’s little to NO incentive for Justin Trudeau to cut government spending or cut government regulations on the private sector and why this matters is that raising interest rates, will actually enrich people who spend Canadian dollars OUTSIDE of Canada as their purchasing power will be greater outside of Canada than it is inside of Canada.
No, when I write this I have to explain why, the reason why Canadian dollars will be better spent outside of Canada, has to do with the REGULATORY environment inside of Canada. When you’re as “smart” as Justin Trudeau, you can make the argument that cost of living increases are a SMALL price Canadians are willing to pay to stop climate change. Yes, people like me know it’s B.S, but good luck to people like me convincing Trudeau loyalists that Trudeau isn’t doing the right thing for THE WORLD.
The price of oil as an example is priced in U.S dollars, Canada does have a petrol dollar, however, we get little benefit from that DOMESTICALLY. Even if the forex markets reward the Canadian dollar, it’s not going to change the reality of the regulatory environment in Canada, which makes it more expensive for Canadian businesses to do business.
People talk about RESIDENTIAL real estate prices in Canada, completely ignoring COMMERICAL real estate prices. Commercial leases aren’t only expensive, so is paying for energy prices for commercial prices, all of these inflated prices get passed onto consumers, and if those businesses can’t pass those costs to consumers, Canadians will experience shortages of things.
So you could actually see DEFLATONARY prices in certain goods, as interest rates rise, but I must point out that certain IMPORTED goods, will not see prices deflate, not because market participants don’t want to sell to consumers, but because they won’t have positive cashflow. If a business does not have positive cash flow, it’ll either cease to be in business, change its business model or raise its prices.
Regulations are like minimum wage laws, the minimum wage law makes it illegal or more importantly UNPROFITABLE for a business to lower costs to consumers. a lot of businesses for example would rather stop selling and building rental purposed housing rather than feel the wrath of rental controls. If the government declares war on fossil fuels, as an investor you’re taking a serious risk looking for oil, so many companies won’t and this leads to SHORTAGES.
Now, the central bank can prevent this from happening, but as you’ll notice, the central banks are often the SCAPEGOAT for politicians. Whether it’s Left Wingers or Right-wingers, people like to blame the central banks, I like to blame DEMOCRACY! I think blaming central banks is LAZY because we’re all to blame for this craziness.
What’s a livable wage? I don’t know? Your guess is as good as mine, but some people live within their means, others want to go to the restaurants and bars every night, travel the world, buy the best clothes, you know to enjoy the finer things in life. Because these people don’t want to live within their means, they use the democratic process to vote for their favorite politician who will MANIPULATE the money supply.So when Justin Trudeau steals money from certain groups of people, the democracy shrugs it off and focuses on making sure that their government checks keep rolling in. I personally see negative interest rates coming to Canada, once it’s realized that rate hikes are accelerating deflation in the economy. A reminder that a lot of Canadians have no money, they’re actually in debt, and not only are they in debt, but they’re also RELIANT on debt, to stay afloat.
So as consumer prices remain as they are or rise, the interest people are spending on their debts is going to accelerate, thereby lowering their standard of living. Regarding house prices, CMHC and its solvency as an example are reliant on the housing markets remaining artificially high. Once cracks start forming in the economy, which could take YEARS, depending, there will be calls to lower interest rates or take on extreme measures.
Now, the real problem is the size of the government, but Trudeau will be the Prime minister for the next 3 years, so the cost of government is going to remain expensive for the foreseeable future.
Interesting times ahead!
