    Ash is such a great interviewer- why are you not interviewing on RV Plus? Can you one day be the interviewee and make a video on your method of interviewing I know this is not investing related but how to ask questions is an essential skill. Many thanks.

      I agree, Ash asking excellent questions from the guest squeezing out tons of information out of them

      Jon + Attila: First, thank you both for your kind words. Now that we've spun up The Exchange platform on RV, there are all kinds of possibilities for the content we can do. What sort of topics would be interesting for you guys about interviewing? Thanks, Ash

      Ash: Traders with skin in the game discussing methodology and perspective is almost always a good bet, although, of course, no one ever wants to give up their “secret sauce.” I think you have a particular talent for explicating the jargon in a way that keeps the conversation going and brings in a wider viewing audience. That is always key, regardless of the specific subject matter. It helps viewers to create their own opinions.

      Sorry for the belayed response. To me the most valuable asset of interviewing I am learning from Ash is how he naturally ask questions which magically bring the interviewee to say what we all want to listen to and might have not said if Ash would have not ask the question. I think any suggestions on how to ask questions as Ash and the comments in between he makes to keep the flow of the conversation will be useful. Thank you Ash!

    I wouldn't say it's a done deal that Canada is going to become this giant UBI and MMT experiment. Trudeau has a minority government, so after making the Throne speech in a couple of weeks he needs it pass parliament or face a non confidence vote and an election. Now everyone assumes that the Liberal Government will receive the necessary support to pass the Throne speech from the NDP. However, I feel there might be some risk there because from all indications what Trudeau and the Liberals are going to announce in the Throne speech will basically make the NDP as a political party irrelevant.

    Very solid interview. Excellent questions, practical answers. The Canadian issue is probably off most investors' radar. I would like to see a lot of experimentation on automatic government payments elsewhere before the US gets all excited about it. I believed it was tried in Sweden and did not work out. I certainly agree on calling an election in Canada if the Liberals want to jump into MMT. The Conservatives should have a good platform. Canada at one time hat about 46 tons of gold in their reserves around 2000. Canada currently has no gold in their reserves. I am not sure it was a good idea to sell all the gold. Once the gold was minted into coins and sold, it was gone forever. DLS

      Wow, that is shocking Canada holds no gold? So much is produced there. They have a ton of natural resources no? With a down dollar and boom commodity market for the next decade that some are calling out that would be good? They also are trying to be a major exporter of cannabis. That could yield more than wine exports in US. One thing we dont talk about as investor is the crime rates of the universal basic income. Im tired of violence and want peace. US cities are crazy and angry. Some crime areas in US cities have issued $1k per month and violence dropped. Of course there bankrupt but less people dying.

      I lived in Toronto for five years from 1975 - 1980. It was very safe and a wonderful place to live at that time. I believe Canada chose to use their gold to make and sell gold coins. If so, that revenue is spent. Paying everyone to not commit crimes seems like blackmail to me. The amount to keep them happy will keep going up. The classic way would be to pay for more and better policing, job training better schools. I do not know if the classic way will work anymore. DLS

      Something I have complained about to "management" are the way the different levels are structured. Didn't realize 50% of Essential was free. Guess that offsets the 50% discount for resigning.

    great video..I.would be happy to see more of Tony Greer and Jared Dillian. I think a good mix between more technical sentiment driven traders and fundamental analysis such as by Ed Harrison and Raoul Pal deliver the best combination to guide us through the current situation. Roger Hirst has been also great. Thanks

      Canada is already imploding. As Jared pointed out deficits have exploded.The C$ has strengthened in tandem with the rise in oil since March because the world incorrectly still considers CAD to be a petro-currency. Trudeau and his "green dream team" have knee-capped fossil fuel production in Canada. The USD/CAD is going to 1.85 to 2.0 IMO. (Full disclosure - disgruntled Albertan)

      Recently the Trudeau government announced that investment in 'green infrastructure/energy would be a big part of economic stimulus to revive the Canadian economy. Lots of green spending however is questionable economics.

    Interesting comments on Canada (as a Canadian I agree). Jared's concerns are consistent with comments made by David Rosenberg about the Canadian economy (conversation with Ed Harrison several months ago).

    You have to question the timing of the FT article if Softbank really was delta neutral. Like yelling fire in a theatre ascribing all the long call action to one whale forcing an unwind...

    With Tesla, also not a holder, but will be interesting to see how derivative losses will impact stock price action now that it is down 33% from its high. Betting there are some unwinding of trades that will put more downward pressure on price and a boatload of retail traders getting burned for the first time since March. Will Tesla and Apple kill the "buy the bounce" mentality?

    Great DB Ash and Jared. Very interesting! comments on Canada and Tesla. Enjoyed Jared's insights. October is going to be nuts - election will be hard to ignore - and unfortunately, beyond the result. Good intro too Jack. Keep us updated - there are reports Softbank our out.
