Macro Voices Discussion Forum

The investment world is full of scam artists and con men, and one of their favorite tricks is to join an investment-related forum like this one, warm up to other users on that forum, then try to run some kind of scam on them.

I thought Jeff laid-out a very compelling case for how what the Fed has done so far is actually much less than simply papering-over the problems sprung from 2008. The structural disruption in the global eurodollar market tells us that the foundations underneath U.S. dollar hegemony are shaking and those beholden to it (virtually everyone) are going to extremes to stay above water. We've talked about perhaps central bankers putting down their shovels at some point but what about the subjects under this hegemonic system? At what point in the future does the balance between the cons of staying afloat underweigh the cons of breaking way? If the U.S. dollar system were the Titanic, then I guess the answer depends on how near, or far, you are from the epicenter of the sinking vessel. Stay too close and you will get sucked in. Stray too far and you might drift away from rescue. Both are terrible positions to be in...

I was just thinking that I would actually pay money for someone to explain the finer points of this spectacular interview.

Good job guys.

There is a guy who writes about distributed electronic currencies and economic matters generally that you might want to contact.
His name is Steve Randy Waldman

this is a sample of his work:

Interesting interview Eric. His discussion was a bit counter intuitive. If monetary supply is contracting it seems based on simple supply and demand, that the price of money (interest rates) would be increasing. Whenever there is a shortage of "anything" the price goes up. We see interest rates around the world plummeting as if monetary supply is increasing and/or demand is dropping. If I am not missing something, Jeff is saying falling interest rates is a sign of falling monetary supply. If banks don't have money it seems interest rates would be increasing around the world....

One of the more knowledgeable guys to discuss blockchain technology AND business is William Mougayar.

www.linkedin.com/in/williammougayar

He knows the tech and he understands the business. I hope you can book the interview with him.

(BTW: Thanks for the great macro channel! There aren't not too many voices of reason out there to educate people. Your work is very valuable.)

Cheers,

Timo
