Berezin: Bitcoin is risky, there are hedge assets besides gold
Berezin noted that the CPI index of durable goods generally has a decreasing area over time, and therefore it is not a sustainable source of inflation. “You need rapid wage growth for inflation to stay high and the labor market is definitely warming up,” he said. In order to protect against inflation, Berezin said that hard financial assets should be taken into account and used the following statements:
Bitcoin is a risky hedge against inflation. I think there are safer chidollarser, not just gold. I think property, real estate in general, is a good hedging asset. If you think about which asset classes performed best in the 1970s, it was farmland. So get a small cifdollarsik for your gig, and if you’re worried about stagflation, you can hedge that risk to some extent.
On monetary policy, Berezin said that among the major central banks, first of all, the US Federal Reserve is likely to raise interest rates. “Among the largest central banks, the Fed will likely be the first to move on to raise interest rates late next year. “Even if the Fed does raise rates, it won’t do it very quickly,” he said.
