    Sounds like the free market raised rate by making the dollar stronger. And I believe that oil prices was the interest rate back when there were massive U.S. spending and QE

    Guests need to be aware of the whispers in their voices so we can hear what they are saying when they talk softly. Great reminder that the answers are in front of us.

    Jim Carrey is fun and smart! Why is it that the guys who don't take themselves too seriously seem to see things a little more clearly?

    Nice interview. But I must respectfully disagree with "you can't get inflation with overcapacity".Real inflation comes with a loss of confidence in fiat and yes that includes the dollar.

    It's great to sit in on conversations with guys like this. The threads that link all these ideas and thoughts are on the system's fragility and the need to plan to have resilience as well as return.
