What's Wrong With the Hedge Fund Industry?
Despite the multitude of problems facing our country, stocks keep moving higher and higher, leading more people to question if we're currently in a bubble. This leads Dan to explore two important questions. What do you do with your money when you know you're in a bubble? And what do you do if you know that bubble can last for years before popping? Then Dan invites Andrew Beer, Managing Member at Dynamic Beta Investments, on to the show to answer some questions about the world of hedge funds. Andrew joined the hedge fund industry in 1994 as a portfolio manager at Baupost for the legendary Seth Klarman. In recent years, Andrew's focus has been on how the hedge fund model can be improved based on liquidity, access, and cost perspectives. Dan and Andrew discuss his start in the industry and how things have changed over the past 3 decades. Andrew shares some of the reasons hedge funds have declined in popularity over the years.... and how his firm, Dynamic Beta Investments, is looking to change that. And finally, on this week's mailbag quite a few listeners write in to give their perspective on what living through a coup is really like. Some agree with Dan while some others take exception with how Dan spoke about the situation. One even accuses Dan of being a Trump cultist! Listen to Dan's fiery rebuttal to this email and more on this week's episode. Interested in more from Stansberry Research?

The Biden Administration and Risks to Global Growth
This episode is brought to you by Merk Research. Visit this link to take advantage of the offer presented on the podcast. To listen without ads or announcements, become a premium subscriber. Barry Knapp of Ironsides Macroeconomics rejoins the podcast to discuss his view on "policy tremors" that could upend economic and risk asset growth in 2021. (Barry's dog Oliver makes a brief appearance as well). Content (Spotify users can skip directly to the segment by clicking on the timestamp) * The current reflation theme is part of a recovery from what was actually a two-year recession in global manufacturing, trade, and capital spending (4:19); * The Federal Reserve will initially be pleased with rising inflation, having slayed the deflation boogeyman. This will eventually morph into discomfort (first from regional bank presidents) and concerns that inflation is moving "too far, too fast" (11:43); * Once this happens, Fed officials will begin discussing "policy normalization" and real rates will start to move, triggering a risk-off event (13:19); * The Georgia elections the first week of the year were a kind of "sneak preview" of this event, but look to mid-year for the real McCoy (16:37); * Another important indicator: Watch house prices through the spring selling season (20:40); * Two details of President-elect Biden's $1.9 trillion stimulus proposal that are not fully appreciated by the market (21:41); * The Democrats will likely ask for more than Republicans are willing to give, triggering reconciliation that would be a rude awakening for the market (28:38); * If the $1400 stimulus checks go through it may lead to another "speculative blow off" (30:50); * There is no indication President-elect Biden is willing to roll back tariffs on China, though he could re-engage in TPP. But anybody expecting a broader unwinding of the trade war "is pretty off-base" (33:00); * Look for further USD weakness, particularly against the yen and the euro (37:57); * Favorite asset classes for 2021 (41:09) More About The Guest * Website: IronsidesMacro.Substack.com * Twitter: @BarryKnapp * Podcast Not intended as investment advice.
