Our friend Adam Taggart interviews highly-respected market researcher Luke Gromen about the three massive threats facing the global economy at this unique period in history:
1. The first bursting global sovereign debt bubble in over 100 years…
2. The first time in 50+ years that foreign central banks are no longer financing the US economy (i.e., they have stopped growing their holdings of US Treasurys)...
3. The US’ long-standing “petrodollar” advantage is eroding as other countries increasingly strike deals to trade key commodities in non-USD currencies...
As these challenges mount, how will they resolve?
Will increasing weakness cause defaults on the debts that can’t be serviced? (“deflation”) Or will the central planners “do whatever it takes” to keep the economy alive, printing ever-more currency to nominally meet debt payments and support asset prices? (“inflation”)
Like other recent guest experts Adam interviewed, Grant Williams, Jesse Felder, and Jim Bianco, Luke calculates inflation appears by far to be the likelier outcome. Though he presents his own unique and compelling rationale for why.
That said, he remains very wary of today’s drastically deformed market (over)valuations, and doesn’t discount that one or a series of major downward market corrections — like the 65-85% correction predicted later this summer by recent guest expert David Hunter — may happen along the longer path of rising inflation.
Which is why Luke agrees that now, more than ever, is the time to partner with a financial advisor who understands the nature of the risks and opportunities of today’s economy, can craft an appropriate portfolio strategy for you given your needs, and apply sound risk management protection where appropriate:
