In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Daniel Amerman discuss:

  • The Wide Extent Of Central Bank Intervention
    • And the resulting Franken""markets""
  • The Coming Era Of Capital Controls
    • The war on our money is just getting started
  • Don't Underestimate The Incompetence Of Our Leaders
    • Central banks are more stupid than evil
  • Political Risk To The Markets Is Greater Than We Realize
    • It's the trigger everyone is discounting

If you're having a good week you may want to skip this podcast. Chris and Dan roll up their sleeves and dig deeply into where the world is today regarding the financial repression scheme being pursued by central planners.

When you step back, the degree to which the public has allowed the central banks to subvert natural market forces is obscene. But, like the proverbial frog in the pot, the progression has happened slowly enough to avoid a flashpoint of populist ire.

What's even more nauseating though, is the long list of tricks left in the central banking bag to ensure the losses resulting from their bad actions are borne by the populace and not the banks themselves. Welcome to the new era of capital controls. If you can manage to hold on to your money throughout it, that's really saying something. But in order to preserve its purchasing power at the same time, you may just have to be a miracle worker.
