    I am a generally a fan and bought her book. However Pippa's comment that the UK would be ok in or out of the EU reminds me of obama saying in Argentina that communism and Capitalism are the same? UK freedom would not exist IN THE EU. The EU will collapse most likely next year in the elections of France. I highly suggest that Pippa rethink that wealth and success is based on liberty and real ,not crony Capitalism.

    Good interview Pippa! However, do you feel there is some rationality in what millennials think - the way politics is affected by big money interest and is being increasingly so (TTIP and TTP) means some of their concerns are justified. Especially since the Establishment candidates are the people who are funded by these interests? Thanks

    Superb interview. The UK might just as well vote for Brexit now, as it seems the EU is going to eventually fall apart anyway. If the UK decides to stay, then I would put money on it that Germany will be the fist to leave the sinking ship!

    Way too short an interview for one as well versed as Pippa. Otherwise, awesome.

    Good interview with Pippa showing her usual high quality interpretative skills and special insights. Brexit comments seemed very sound and reasonable. In three weeks we will find out if the polls are fair or really, really close.

    Education is extreamly overpriced and inflexible in the USA. Atomize the whole system. That would help a ton, but it’s politically impossible.

    Inflation is present with food, healthcare, asset prices, but lacks velocity of money. I'd like to hear about the conflict of inflation vs the decline demographics in industrialized nations.

    "It's not the Millennials fault...they can't find a job." Please! I almost vomited in the rubbish bin. How about NOT going to univ if you intend to waste your parent's money on gender studies a how to be a swell "activist." We are all doomed because common sense and self-reliance are extinct!

    If Britain leaves the EU, there's a strong possibility that Scotland will succeed and thus remain in the EU. This cannot be good for the long term future of England, as there will be no UK. The ?Russians are loving this thoughts please. Tony W

    Pippa has the millennials nailed perfectly - and we are doomed. Trump, however, is talking sense to a wider demographic (than just Archie Bunker) about immigration. Scott Adams is spot on. And so is

    Good piece. I think a central cause of the "anger" is the feeling that the game is rigged against you, not just have your cake and eat it too.

    I'm a boomer and don't expect fairness. Just don't won't corruption. Expect leaders to not be for sale. Hillary is completely for sale. The hope is Trump isn't even though he is a buffoon.

    And we can't have another recession because everyone who lost their job in the last one has become permanently unemployed or underemployed. People would be terrified if we had another downturn.

    The millennial version of fairness is a cherry picked equality of outcome. There is nothing fair about it at all.

    4. And regarding Brexit, why would I want the UK to be a part of that EU madness? The Brussels officials who make the policies are unelected and unaccountable: that's a dictatorship, not a democracy.

    3. What's fair about 40-50% youth unemployment in some European countries, forcing economic migration among the best educated and the most able, and creating a lost generation in those that remain?

    1. As a young millennial, I didn't understand the comment that we've been brought up in an environment where everything's fair. Sure, we got rid of slavery and we're working on racism...

    lower Sum of FDIs = lower global trade and more defense spending QE = more trade tariffs thus less global exports; sounds like global stagflation outcome to me or what do I miss?

    Thanks Pippa and Grant. Excellent as usual. Yes, there is an "atmosphere" around that can be felt. Gets me thinking about what is fundamentally important, as well as about financial strategies.

    On the subject of Defense spending as QE4, I noted that the headline to Obama in Vietnam was that now Vietnam can buy US defense materiale! Presumably Vietnam will help keep China at bay?!

    I see inflation everywhere- a loaf of bread is $4.50; renters spending 50% of wages on rent vs. 30% 8 yrs ago. Real estate, stocks inflated. Food is expensive. It's expensive being alive.

    Question on Grant's comment on Debt. Using the BOJ as the model, I'm attempting to assess the impact of the "Accting entry" where the Gov't wipes out the debt it owes itself .

    Is it because China doesn't have sufficient transparency that we don't consider it the fastest growing economy? (appreciating that growth is slowing - even at 4% its faster than the US)

    Well scoped interview. We are still in 'extend and pretend' for the foreseeable future? I liked the 'war' question but did not feel Pippa closed it. Grant/Pippa- do you buy into the 4th Turning?

    Thanks for the positive comments! I agree that Blockchain COULD protect privacy but, sadly, the reason governments want it is for the opposite reason. Also see Godhart & Haldane on e-money & QE.

    One tiny clarification. Blockchain as a technology does allow very good privacy, but authorities very probably don't allow such blockchain. Regulators want to see everything and they will.

    As wonderful Dr Malmgren said herself, she (like many financial commentators)he doesn't really know what "block-chain" dose and how to use it. it CAN create privacy, and decentralization. period.
