    Very similar to the thoughts of Peter Schiff, who was my gateway drug into this more advanced/nuanced stuff. Yes to a discussion with him/Raoul, and also with Hart re: China. Deval vs Reval? Ahh!

    Would be interesting to hear what Raoul thinks of his Treasury/inflation thesis

    An interesting and highly thought provoking think piece as we continue to digest the turkey while looking into the 2016 tea leaves

    As the great Hugh Hendry once said "you ain't a contrarian".

    One of John Mauldin's unoriginal thinkers... Regurgitation of the contentious views on central banking... Yawn..

    Juxtaposing with Burbank's talks provides compelling counterpoints regarding US prospects. Great piece.

    Peter made excellent & logical linkage between inflation, interest rates, bonds & EMs/precious metals. He talks fast but clearly. I appreciated his honesty that his timing was usually too early.

    Really good explanation of the complexities for 2016. A number of good strategies to consider based on the scenarios he outlines. RV: what happened to the table of contents tab? Missed it. Thx
