Featuring Dr. Pippa Malmgren

Published on: February 15th, 2016 • Duration: 20 minutes

Dr. Pippa Malmgren, founder of DRPM Group, founder of H Robotics, features in this week's Think Piece discussing how the next round of QE could come as defense spending, how US banks are being saddled with government debt, and outlining the capital controls that are feasible in a NIRP environment.

    Why would defense spending (=war) be the only option? Why not do something benefitting domestic & suffering population? Why is having free education an extreme position (in Europe = free)?

    C'mon, Hitler's book was only republished because copyright had expired. How can you smilingly talk about a nuclear strike on Sweden and contemplate investment opportunities at the same time?

    I am from Germany. Don't worry too much about the reprinting of Hitler's "Mein Kampf". It's a commented version by some scientists no right winger is interested in.

    @ALEX go back in the archives. Pippa has 1.5 hr interview, and she's the interviewer in a few spots as well. Well worth your time to go back and view those!!

    Nice person, random thoughts. Central banks know they cannot save the world. Throwing darts and name dropping will promote speaking tours, but will not help the situation.

    I'm sorry, but what hard evidence is there that government(s) are actively pursuing a policy of expropriation because they're broke?

    Derivative thinking, unoriginal and contrived. Tell me one thing, that either Hendry, Crispin Odey, Chanos, Bass or Raoul havent said 5years ago

    She couldn't be more spot on with fish. Cargill's been on a massive fish farmery buying spree last 12 months.

    The only thing I have to add is that the price of fish, might not stay up with the introduction of GMO farmed salmon or 'frankenfish" into the market in the coming years.

    Pippa is incredibly smart and engaging. Here in Asia I can assure her the post cold war arms race is on. And fear of China is driving it. History suggests the multiplier effect on arms is low.

    Once again in Pippa's Parlour where she seems to enjoy telling us her views as much we enjoy hearing them! Enthusiasm can be contagious.

    Q for Pippa: What upheavals in the markets would prove to you that the FED has lost control? What would it take to convince the FED that it has lost control? Because that is the point of no return...

    Her articulation of the FED psychology and motivation is completely buzz-words free and simply amazing.

    Great interview but on Cruz a miss - he just controlled opp whose rise facilitated by bushies same as Rubio. Just read art of the deal & have whole new view of trump - expect a landslide in general.

    Great discussion. I like the fast paced approach. Valuable thoughts on the need for the State to expropriate, the war machine, academic Central Banks not wanting to understand risk. A good watch.

    Love u Dr. Pippa! What happened to capitalism in the US?Keynesian economics is dangerous - doesn't produce jpbs or revive the economy. It only reflates assets & deflates if no economic growth.

    Pippa. Great points. Enjoyed your presentation. Reversal of history, defence spend, these signs are as bad, worse, than the insanity of the Fed et al. Am thankful for my stream/bush NZ, birdsong calm

    Sorry Don, socialism is worse because it "legitimizes" cronyism. What we have today doesn't resemble actual capitalism at all. Malmgren's insights are original. Excellent interview!

    Socialism may be better than crony/dirty/deepcapture capitalism which is what we have now.

    One of Ms Malgren's best interviews. Interesting take on Russian and Chinese view that Hillary is worse outcome militarily than Trump or Cruz. That is not something I've heard anywhere else!

    Fantastic piece. I one push-back I have is with Cruz. He certainly is perceived as anti-establishment, but that’s because the establishment wants it that way. Sadly voters will fall for it a la Bern.

    "CoCo" may result in a NSFW result. So here is CoCos as per The Telegraph (http://goo.gl/r3sQoU) The Economist (http://goo.gl/V9e77W) and Bloomberg (http://goo.gl/asoQZH).

    Excellent presentation of this view. I fear Pippa is spot on re militaristic outcomes. One question: what are "co-co's" ?

    Great information wrapped in a rational, logical, and humourous package. Pippa proves wisdom and the ability for laconic expression of complex subjects is gender agnostic. Well done Pippa!
