Jerome Powell on Dogecoin and CBDCs

During a press conference, Yahoo Finance reporter Brian Cheung consulted with Fed Chairman Jerome Powell regarding the recent price increases of the crypto meme, Dogecoin.

Specifically, Cheung asked whether low interest rates and monetary policy in the United States have contributed in a very particular way to this event. Faced with the question, Powell replied, “Some of the asset prices are high. They are seeing things in the capital markets that are a bit frothy. That is a fact… I will not say that it has nothing to do with monetary policy, but it also has a lot to do with vaccination and the reopening of the economy.

It is worth explaining that when you use the term “frothy,” you are referring to assets that have been separated from their intrinsic value, which refers to the true value of an asset.
