When eternal optimist Gene Epstein is worried, you know things are bad. So... is he worried? I speak with the former Barrons economics and books editor, now host of the Soho Forum, about where he thinks we are now, and what is to come.
Gene lays out his view for the next few years, backs it up with good data-driven reasons, and talks a little about his own investment strategy. He also explains why I was wrong about hyperinflation in 2008.
Gene's article, "The Great Suppression" can be found here.
And my article, "An Open Letter to my Pro-Obama Friends" is here, and my follow-up three years later, is here.
The Soho Forum is here.
The next debate happens this Wednesday, March 17, and the topic is whether presidents should be given fast-track authority to propose bills for all types of legislation, that Congress must approve or deny by majority vote and without change. You can register at the Soho Forum site.
