Hugh Hendry joins Jason Hartman to share what was going through his head through the 2008 recession and what preliminary actions he took to position himself well. Everyone is wondering “where are we going [market]” and Hendry shares some thoughts based on actions the Fed took over the last 60 years. 

Hugh discusses the early signs of chaos that awaits us as we move away from an accepted form of order. It’s not always a perfect situation for investing, especially if you only have one mindset for profit. Chaotic times call for positioning yourself to profit from a different angle. 

Key Takeaways:

[2:00] 31.2% positive return back in the 2008 recession

[3:00] To be curious you have to misbehave first.

[6:30] Discussing the “boom-market in fear.”

[12:00] Everybody is wondering where we are going [market]? 

[28:00] What is your stance on Paul Volcker?

[21:30] What is the FED doing wrong?

[22:00] Looking for predictions in gold, the dollar, etc.

[29:30] We are conditioned by the very slow passage of time. 

[30:00] Gold has been trending.

[32:45] 50 years ago we were pivoting from chaos to order. Today, we are pivoting from an accepted order to chaos. 

[34:18] We live in a world where instead of reducing the money supply, they are desperate to increase the money supply.

[38:15] In preparation, think of the most chaotic events becoming normalized, and how you can profit from chaos instead of order.

[39:30] At the bottom of a deleveraging cycle, everything is cheap.

[41:30] “May you live in interesting times,” -the quote is back.

Jason Hartman with guest, Harry Dent, for the rant of the year! “This is a bubble that is waiting to pop,” says Dent as he opens up about the Coronavirus just being a cover for some underlying economic issues. “This is much worse than a debt-bubble; it’s a financial asset bubble.”

Harry speaks on his thoughts about gold, cryptocurrency, and inflation. Specifically, asset vs. consumer inflation. What causes inflation? What’s to be expected in the future when it comes to commercial real estate? What will happen to the once sought after McMansions?

Key Takeaways:

[1:30] This is a bubble that was waiting to pop, and Coronavirus was just the cover.

[12:45] China has already hit its peak. They’re going to have trouble keeping up with India.

[14:30] What is Harry Dent’s opinion on cryptocurrency, bitcoin? 

[17:45] Gold correlates with one thing, inflation. 

[19:30] Money printing doesn’t necessarily cause inflation.

[23:15] Asset vs. consumer inflation, that’s the bubble.

[29:30] Commercial real estate and McMansions will collapse while the 3/2 will go on to thrive. 

[35:00] The first billionaires were born of the great depression.

Not a cryptocurrency, but a COVID-Currency. Jason Hartman shares news of a small town in Washington that has created their own local currency, something that hasn’t been used since the Great Depression.

Ellen Brown is today’s guest here to discuss Universal Basic Income, UBI. As well, she shares some interesting details about what happens to the money when a debt is paid. How did China increase its money supply by such a large percentage in two decades? 

Key Takeaways:

Guest: Ellen Brown, author of over a dozen books including, The Public Bank Solution, From Austerity to Prosperity

[2:30] What is a postal account? 

[10:45] What is the end game of money spending?

[12:10] Money is lent into existence. Banks create the principal but they don’t create the interest, so debt always grows faster than the money supply.

[15:00] The real economy is always short of money because there’s a hole in the bucket that always drains into the financial economy.

[16:00] What is the financialized economy? 

[20:20] Debt grows until it gets so high that people can’t borrow anymore, so they pay down their debts instead of taking out new debts. That shrinks the money supply. That goes into deflation which goes into depression. 

[22:30] Money evaporates when it pays off the debt.

[26:30] All of our money is credit. China increased its money supply by 1800% in twenty years, and they did not run into hyperinflation. Find out more.

[4:45] Casey presupposes that the worst of the 2008 recession is yet to come, and that for the last 8-10 years, we have been in the calm, the eye, of the storm.

[6:30] “This could be more than a financial meltdown. Possibly an economic and social meltdown as well.”

[7:00] The U.S. is no longer a country, but more-so a multi-dimensional, domestic, empire.

[9:20] Bonds are a triple threat, about the worst place for your money at this time.

[11:30] Bonds, stocks, cash, gold, cryptocurrency?

[15:15] Have we entered the greater depression? This could potentially be the biggest upset since the industrial revolution.

[20:50] Surviving a depression, the most important thing is to have assets where there is no counter-party risk. Something in which you don’t have to trust a bank, insurance company, or your pension fund.

[23:30] Having fun, what about mining the asteroids?
