Published on: March 23rd, 2016 • Duration: 26 minutes

    Great stuff indeed. Thanks RV! Would be great if there was a Q&A and/or discussion feature for each video rather than just a comment section. I bet a lot of members want to discuss the contents in more detail.

    Same question as staurt came to mind, if inflation comes back, why does dollar continue higher?

    why will the US $ resume its upward trend if/when inflation reaccelerates his summer?

    Back in 1987 when the Fed eased, the acceleration in CPI may have been helped by the baby boomers and low debt. Now I am not so sure the same factors will support inflation.

    So inflation is coming and central banks will start raising rates?

    NIRP is deflationary so if we get the pop in inflation Julian sees and it forces CBs to abandon NIRP, that will perhaps exacerbate the new inflation and cause it to go higher. Would be interesting.

    Julien is excellent. But Is this opposite to Raoul's view that collapse of oil is not an infaltionary event?

    Clarifies what the official Narratives really mean -- or don't. How does one freeze-frame to get a longer look at the chart? Any way to print 'em???

    Interesting, but this discounts debt and debt deflation which is still hanging over us. There were no lines on the charts showing non government credit. Once that gets cleared out, then inflation.

    Many think one of the best on RV, must agree! They understand important underlying factors that move markets. Really critical, needs to be on more.

    Very interesting and a lot to understand, Had to listen to it twice! Can't I thumb up twice?!Question: Are not the CBs 'myopically' focused on increasing inflation to manage the trillions of debt?

    My take away from the presentation is that rate hikes is necessary to slow down the expected inflation before the summer. Not sure how this support Gold unless the hikes are not strong enough...

    This dovetails with Peter Brandt's charts and gives a plausible scenario where both the dollar and gold move higher together. Almost every video on RV could be called a "Think Piece".

    Yen, Euro and GBP to strengthen; commons will collapse as china devals. Gold and other commods going no where as there is no global demand. Hard to explain. But GBP, Yen vs NZD, SGD longs are good.

    Don't think inflation assets will rip for years; more of a trade against all the wrong footed deflationary positioning; stagflation; still think like a trader; enjoy watching CB's chasing their tails

    i'm not sure i follow the narrative here. inflation is going to 'explode' coinciding with massive dollar strength, when we import ~80% of durable goods, and 50 oil is the driving force of this?

    Best of 2016 so far. Julian is the one that gave me more food for thought. Worth watching it twice to fully absorb the content. Well done RV

    Another excellent video with so much food for thought from Julian. To have heard the views of Julian, Paul Brodsky and Martin Armstrong in the last week is simply invaluable.

    This call on reemergence of inflation could lead to one of the greatest trades if correct. In any case julian's videos are must watchs

    This presentation is a stagflation warning....rising rates into a weak economic environment... along with surging inflation...ugh...but have to agree...will be interesting to see how gold reacts.

    I probably enjoy Julian as much as any interview on Real Vision. Great insights and a real joy to listen to.

    Finally someone talking about inflation. No doubt its on its way, this is the new contrarian view.

    Excellent clarity of communication, charts included and a style that is personal and yet no nonsense. Maybe one can teach an old dog (me) new tricks. Please, sir, I want some more.

    With regards to oil's pricing being a result of just the dollar. There are significant causes affecting both supply and the demand. No meaningful inflation until velocity turns up.

    Julian's presentations and investment ideas are clear, well thought out and persuasive. The supporting charts are excellent. He is the best at communicating his view.

    Julian is by far one of my favorite Real Vision guest. This presentation demonstrates that markets, not central banks, dictate trends. Therefore the Accord agreement conspiracy is simply bollocks!

    Logical presentation that takes an alternative view to many other interviewees. The arguments made are compelling. I look forward to further updates.
