Featuring Dr. Pippa Malmgren

Published on: May 22nd, 2015 • Duration: 53 minutes

In the second part of what many viewers are calling the best interview so far on Real Vision, Dr. Pippa Malmgren, best-selling author of the book 'Signals' and former Economic Advisor to two U.S. presidents, expands on the ECB actions in the Eurozone and the unintended consequences those actions are having, and explains how volatility has now moved from markets to politics.

    Excellent!! I especially liked the comments about social and political volatility. I gave me a whole new appreciation of what is happening in the world.

    After Pippa's talk, I understand the bizarre policy actions of the USgov. It's just a balance of political pain and economic pain. No long term plan. No plan at all!

    Excellent narrative and logical consequences from the mad situation we´re in. But there is some elasticity in the concepts used re social contract. Can it be called contract if enforced unilaterally?

    Pippa's comment about hyperinflation not being a concern stood out. I am in the camp that loss of confidence in the USD may lead to that but it was dismissed. All in all great interview

    I would love to know the robotics play she is involved with. we need productivity growth! I think she is sanguine because she has seen this movie before. read "the dying of money."

    "You could tax 100% of people 100% and still have a hole"..."Partisan gridlock guarantees inflation will be the method of default" - 20 yrs from now many will ask how they didn't see it coming...

    Supressed volatility in financial markets morphing into real world volatility aka social unrest. That concept alone is worth the price of 1 year subscription. Thank you RV and Pippa.

    I like her but she stopped short of stating the obvious. The only way a new social contract can be achieved without bloodshed is by reducing the size of the recipients of tax money including the UN

    She thinks the US has no choice but to inflate away its massive debt. But then she says there won't be hyperinflation and inflation will be around 2-3% max... But you can't have both!!

    there are enough USDs to cause hyperinflation in the US. They exist outside US and if the confidence in the system is lost, they will return. its just a confidence game

    she recognizes that vol is seeping into the political sphere and yet she seems so sanguine. fact is always stranger than fiction. tighten your seat belts and hang on to your hats

    Dr. Malmgren's ability to add a historical perspective to today's political/financial environment is incredibly useful. I'll definitely be reading her book. Grant is a brilliant interviewer!

    Only RV could have allowed us into "Pippa's Parlour" where we could hear her finish her thoughts without constant annoying interrupt. Thanks again RV.

    Pipps's grasp of the interconnection of markets, politics and society and her ability to explain it are phenomenal. Clearly one of the best interviews so far. Thanks.

    Volatility cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed from one area of human enterprise into another. Pippa's law of conservation of volatility.

    "Suppressing volatility in the financial indices pushes volatility into real markets and politics" - what an insight! One of so many. Kudos Grant for an excellent interview.

    Bill, the book to which I was referring was Tim Geithner's book, Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises. It's not a great read but there are some interesting bits in there...

    Pippa is the female version of Jim Rickards. It seems like the elephant in the room is a deep captured SEC and Washington by the banks and the Fed. No mention of that or really anything else. #Insider

    The 'social contract' is not a contract, a contract is not based on the initiation of force.
