David Bouckley

Featuring David Bouckley

David Bouckley, author of the Bull and Bear Breakdown, speaks on contrarian investing in a world of short-termism, walking through commodities, precious metals, and Bitcoin – even water. Connectivity, currency wars, and the deflationary scenario with China – Bouckley takes us on a whirlwind tour of the world today, and the investment opportunities of a contrarian tomorrow.

    Great interview - please have him on again! Really appreciate hearing this kind of conversation (and getting more of an "eastern" perspective).

    Fascinating. Ultimately health care / pensions cant be sustained. Does that mean higher taxes & broken promises? Probably. But my bet is currency deval is big part of answer - a health care actuary

    It would be nice to update the contrarian conversation after the last two weeks of events: SNB move, QE in Europe, Greece election, and the continued move in the US dollar index and oil.

    Ali, I think they started out that way out of necessity but soon realised that they were all in the same boat so opted to present a united front. That is now a thing of the past for sure. Dangerous

    Grant - I don't think central banks were ever purposefully "coordinated", they coincidentally all cut rates at the same time for self-serving purposes
