    His thesis primarily rested on dollar weakness , and essentially that is playing out. And interestingly that's what the rest of the world wanted.

    Interesting point I have never heard before; once a Country realizes they are in a full fledged deflation the currency quits going down and there is no need for flight to another currency.

    Disagree on why Fed raised rates. They want / need inflation, so wouldn't make sense to say eco = too strong. They raised in order to have room to lower if need be.

    Re-watched this video after the EUR/USD reaction to the ECB, which he theorized. So if the FED is Hawkish or raises rates and the $ goes down, what he theorized occurs. So do you act on his suggestio?

    Rewatching this today as the action in EUR/USD had me thinking of this piece. Very prescient and interesting analysis

    Econ 404. I need a cheat sheet to follow these guys sometimes. Up is Down and weak is strong.?? And at the very end there, transition to ...what is completed? Yes, he mentioned it earlier, but 'que'?

    Now let's see who does Steve work for? My mouth dropped wide open several times. Examples: No contagion from European banks. Aha. Strong corporate, bank and household balance sheets, aha. Ha, ha, ha

    Excellent piece...but troubling...a bit too smug...institutions have vetted all of their risk contingencies ? Nobody should have any real opinion on what could happen next..Keep your antennas up.

    The annual price of RV is alone worth it to watch this interview once. That you get to watch it again is priceless.

    One of RV's best interviews. Money flows drive currencies therefore indicate global investment mindsets. He explained this very clearly. An investment goldmine!!

    So commodities in credit hell, now fixed income being shoe-horned into credit hell, what about over-regulation? The unseen Black Swan going to squeeze all banks into none existence...look out below!!

    Excellent. A little bit over my head on the currency trade points. Can RV do some type of Currency 101 video? PLEASE? In the current environment we need to understand FOREX!!!!!

    Great Macro intermarket analysis I love Steve's game plan based on FX. Raoul views are not too different , they are just at 1 step below conditions . What a joy to get idea-generationally inspired:)

    Smart guy, snappy delivery. But isn't he trapped in a box of Equities or Bonds? What if the answer is 'neither'? Maybe the US 10 yr is a trading buy, but 1.7% is not an attractive coupon!

    RV, it would be interesting to have regular confrontations (like Raoul/Ken) in addition to think pieces. We get divergent views with convincing thesis and would be nice & unique to see how it resolves

    This guy makes an awful lot of "definitive" statements about things whose answers can't possibly be determined now (eg, US banks "know" all their risks from European bank problems, really???)..

    Fantastic. Concise if/then w/r to currencies and USD. For those looking here is one of his early truth bombs on CNBC from last year.

    Great Think Piece as it challenges my view about the global economy and particularly FX. Next few weeks should set the tone for the rest of Year given 3 CB meetings. Raoul vs Steve :)

    Well done RVTV in persuading Mr Ricchiuto to give us half-an-hour's worth of crystal clear analysis. Great if he could feature as a regular commentator too.

    I was excited to see this interview on the schedule and was not disappointed. It's always fun to see Steve disrupt CNBC for a few minutes but a half hour of clear thought is appreciated.

    Thank you for getting some diversity of opinion. Better way to frame viewpoints and avoid confirmation bias.

    Great piece, but we actually do know how to deal with deflation. See Jim Grant's "The Recession that Cured Itself".. Excess Demand? Look at Say's Law - demand is driven by production..

    WOW What a refreshing and clear spoken perspective. This is probably THE interview that merges a lot of conflicting views in the market and the currency/$ positions. Raoul does view of $ change w PPP
