You don’t have to go more than 1:18, into this interview to get an inaccurate definition of inflation.
With that said, it does not keep the (delusional) bugs in the comment section from eating it up.
The interviewer, if he had the strength, could have stopped it right there and challenged with: ‘Inflation is defined as the expansion of credit that results in increased demand that in turn results in higher prices.’
At this point in time, we’re in credit destruction (i.e. Wells Fargo shutting down credit lines) not expansion … um, which is deflation not inflation.
At this point, it looks like there will be complete destruction first which brings us to the next bullet item.
Only Problems. No Solutions
Personal Anecdote. Skip to No. 6, if not interested.
Back in the day as an Engineering Manager, there were times an employee (usually an engineer) would walk into my office and give me a list of problems on a particular project.
If this happened a second time, I would sort of gently (maybe) let them know, ‘If you bring me problems, you need to have solutions as well.’
I also let them know, if they were not able to come with solutions, I would map out a long-term action plan (basically starting documentation for termination) for their continued development.
How many YouTube sites talk endlessly about the problem?
It does not take much effort or thought or creativeness to tell us what we already know.
This site not only presents the problem(s), but also presents potential solution(s) or action(s).
Problem: Markets stretched to valuations beyond historical extremes. Traditional methods of analysis (P/E ratios, Book Value. etc.) no longer work. The market could ‘disconnect’ and be unavailable to trade for days or weeks at a time (think Klaus Schwab ‘cyber attack’).
Solution: (not advice, not a recommendation):
Identify a market and trading vehicle that has its own direction and is separated from the overall mass-hysteria. Position ‘in and out’, as required in that market until such time there are other opportunities of similar potential.
That market thus far, has been identified as biotech, SPBIO. The trading vehicle is LABD (not advice, not a recommendation).
Any disconnect or surprise event is already factored in as a likely positive for the position taken, i.e. being short biotech
We’re not only taking this approach for the current market environment but the supply chain as well.
The supply chain shut down and the potential famine that will ensue, is one of, if not the main reason(s) silver and gold may be of no use (at least temporarily) in the troubles to come.
