    Totally wrong on China and the yuan. That's been a hotly debated one admittedly. Given they have now begun devaluing I wonder how he sees it evolving from here?

    Nice that there are still people who are positiv on the US. THERE HAVE TO BE ENOUGH PEOPLE on the other side of the "trade". Just BELIEVE :-)

    20% of S&P companies already 20% below their highs. Many techs with weak 2H forecasts. US stocks and economy could roll over. Fed wont raise rates. QE instead. What happens to USD in currency war?

    Covered a wide range of subject areas in an engaging manner and was a tad more optimistic than many recent speakers. He gets my vote.

    Was he just talking to a camera? No reflection in the window of another person, and he was much less engaging than I have seen him before. Seems like poor format did a disservice to him (and us)

    What a legend! Always wanted to hear him in a thorough conversation. I found some of his EM and World Trade comments really thought provoking. Thank you for this interview!

    A bit ho-hum I'm afraid. All he needed to do was extrapolate from his belief in a strong USD and the rest falls into place from there. Fall being the operative word.
