    re: The pending shift to inflation. The subject is historically covered for the period March 1933 - August 1934 in Prices by Warren & Pearson (1933) Chapter 9, Figure 7 on page 192. Ladies and gentlemen start adjusting your measuring tools to forecast our transition date ahead.

    Re: Inelasticity of Food and Rents to come down with commodity prices in our current situation. The same thing occurred from 1920-1930 (see Prices by Warren and Pearson 1933 Chapter 11. And in the 1980's we called it stag-flation. ie: real wages decline.

    From 2003 to 2007 the real estate appraisers at the banks contributed to the inflated prices. Since the 1970's economists had watched the rise of consumer short-term debt. Greenspan before Congress said: let them use the equity in their home. Corporations are use to borrowing long-term to get over short-term losses; however, the consumer does not have that discipline and spent it on SUV's, remodeling the home and big weddings for children. This response by the consumer fanned the flames of default.

    On modified economic indicators: Starting in 1981 the Inventory to Sales Ratio went from LIFO to FIFO which resulted in the distinctive pattern of the business cycle being muted. The Wall Street Journal at the time declared the business cycle dead.

    Best segment I've seen on RVTV. What about another 'Chain' that starts with Pippa and heads in the direction of policy makers as opposed to traders?

    Great conversation. I also think the U.S. Is making too many enemies in her economic/military pivot to Asia. NZ and Australia have huge trade with China. NZ, 1980s spurned the U.S. (Nukes). TPP also?

    Very good interview, but spoiled by the BS "US has a great and robust economy". Obviously socializing with politicians in DC is contagious :)

    The 'it's all good fun' communication of the incompetence of these administrators and burearcrats is unsettling. These same .gov 'people' fund the MIC, condoning war and human suffering after all.

    Very interesting while frightening also. I can't help but feel that Dr. Malmgren is holding back on the sinister nature of this and the obviously catastrophic end game. She's an insider after all.

    I think she's right that policymakers will choose inflation as the least painful form of default. I have trouble squaring this with rainmaker's buy bonds recommendation. Amazing interview!

    Loved interview, but what about the fact that the political process and thus policy has been captured by the bankers? Politicians are nothing but figure heads to political machines -ALEC

    Was about to terminate the interview half way through. Glad I didn't. Fascinating second half. The end game of the FED, an the ONLY game, is to inflate out of the abyss. Hence, the classic struggle.

    The consequense of what she is saying simply is "there will be no return to free markets anytime soon" at least no "voluntary" one. If the markets don't behave ...

    The reason the interview ran a little "long" for me is that I stopped it in the middle to order her book from Amazon! Macro Politcal/Economics at it's very best----again, thank you Grant and Raoul.
