This episode of Fed Watch is a cosmic ride though the broad topics of money, central banks, and bitcoin. Christian and Ansel start by extending the analogy of a financial hurricane, which Ansel spoke about in another recent podcast. Many people point to certain asset price rises as a sign of inflation, however, Ansel argues that it is a natural evolution of prices due to the malfunctioning financial system. This malfunctioning financial system acts similarly to a physical natural disaster by distorting supply and demand for goods. During a decade-long financial hurricane, changes occur not only to asset allocations of investors but the system itself can evolve. It affects the pipes and infrastructure of the financial system, favoring relatively “safer” global assets like US Treasuries and US stocks. The economic behavior, products, and relationships that form during a financial hurricane will favor hedging against deflation rather than risk taking or behavior aimed at expansion.
