Concrete: An unlikely hero in the climate crisis
Play episode · 31 min

The world is on track to add as many people to cities in the next 40 years as we have in the last 40 centuries. Those new buildings and roads will require a lot of concrete, which historically was an economically and environmentally inefficient building material. However, new innovators are leveraging technology to tackle both of those problems. The challenge they face, though, is around policy and building momentum. Right now, regulations prohibit some concrete manufacturers from innovating, even as more companies are demanding climate action. 

Key takeaways: 

  • City and rural dwellers alike are impacted by inefficient concrete and should advocate for the use of climate-friendly building materials.
  • Climate entrepreneurs like CarbonCure provide solutions that can turn legacy materials into an engine for environmental good. 
  • Canada has all the ecosystem support - talent, knowledge, and global connections - necessary to lead the climate entrepreneurship race. What’s missing is policy action and market signals from governments that climate-friendly building materials should be prioritized.

David Hunter: 1970s Style Inflation Will Set Gold on Fire
Tom welcomes back experienced investment professional David Hunter of Contrarian Macro Advisors. David discusses the origins of the current secular bull market and how we are now nearing the end stage. In the final stage of bull markets, they can go parabolic. He expects a deflationary bust and involuntary debt liquidation cycle to begin in the first half of 2021. The economy needs a stimulus package despite the soon to be released GDP numbers that will likely show an unprecedented annualized increase of 30-35%. Congress doesn't share the same level of urgency as many Americans who no longer have jobs. Parts of the economy, like housing and technology, are doing well, but other sectors like the hospitality industry, have been hit hard. The damage to many small businesses has been massive and unprecedented. David uses the term "bust" to differentiate from a depression. What is coming will be more dramatic than 2008-2009 but won't be drawn out like a depression. U.S. banks are relatively more healthy than European banks. The coming deflationary downturn will be widespread and catch most people by surprise. Prices will be hit across the board, but the declines won't be long-lasting due to the amount of injected liquidity. He expects the Fed's balance shee t to balloon above twenty trillion by the end of next year. The government's initial reaction will likely be too slow, and it will take a couple of years to get back to positive inflation. Inflation will begin to take off around 2025 to 2026 when the economy overheats due to the excess money creation. We will then enter a period worse than the 1970s as double-digit inflation kicks in, which will take most people by surprise. He discusses the outlook for the housing markets and mortgage rates over the next couple of years, along with some targets for oil, gold, silver, GDX, GDXJ, SIL, and SILJ. For the remainder of the year, the dollar will remain under pressure, but next year there will likely be a flight to safety, which will bid the dollar higher, possibly much higher.

Annie Duke: 'How To Decide' - That's Where The Money Is!
There are a host of different factors which lead to great trading and investing performance, but at the end of the day, we live and die by the quality of the decisions, we make. It is ‘Where the Money Is!’. Our ability to make good quality decisions in financial markets is heavily compromised by our inability to be truly objective in the face of the extreme complexity, uncertainty and randomness. What we think is the best decision in the moment, doesn’t necessarily yield the best outcome. The world of Poker provides some great examples of how to make decisions in situations characterised by complexity, uncertainty and randomness. Our guest this week, Annie Duke, is a former professional poker player and world champion. Annie authored the brilliant ‘Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the Facts’, and has a new book out called ‘How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices’. Annie believes that we can all become better at making good decisions, and that this ability can increase our odds of success in the financial markets. In this interview we explore these themes with Annie, some of the topics touched upon include:  •      Identifying and dismantling our hidden biases. •      Extract the highest quality feedback from the markets.  •      Accurately identifying the influence of luck in the outcome of your decisions. •      When to decide fast, when to decide slow, and when to decide in advance. •      How to make decisions that more effectively help you to realize your goals and improve your performance.  •      How to better manage your emotions and reduce their undue influence in your decision-making process.  We are pretty sure you will find Annie’s reflections extremely valuable.
