Contagion! Evergrande, Inflation, Shortages & Fed Taper To Worsen Slowing Economy | Jim Bianco (PT1) – Source – Wealthion

The world has become a lot more volatile over the past few weeks. Markets are lurching up & down as investors have become suddenly concerned about contagion — and not just from the new COVID variants, but contagion from the failure of big players in China, like Evergrande, and contagion from rising input costs caused by both stimulus and snarled global supply chains.

A mind-boggling amount of money — tens of trillions of dollars worth of monetary & fiscal stimulus — has been issued around the world since the pandemic broke out last year. But the global economy is slowing fast, led by Asia — and China in particular. How can the boost to the economy from such a massive flood of money already be over? How worried should we be? And what are the likely implications? To tackle these important questions, I’m thrilled to welcome Jim Bianco back onto the program. Jim is President and Macro Strategist at Bianco Research, where he provides objective, incisive commentary that challenges consensus thinking. across monetary policy, the intersection of markets and politics, the role of government in the economy, fund flows and positioning in financial markets.

There’s no doubt that it’s a very challenging time right now for the average investor. Above and beyond the recent economic impacts of COVID, the new era of record low interest rates, runaway US debt and US deficits, and trillions of dollars in monetary and fiscal stimulus stimulus has changed the rules of investing by dangerously distorting the Dow index, the S&P 500, and nearly all other asset prices. Can prices keep rising, or is there a painful reckoning ahead? Let us help you prepare your portfolio just in case the future brings one or more of the following: inflation, deflation, a bull market, a bear market, a market correction, a stock market crash, a real estate bubble, a real estate crash, an economic boom, a recession, a depression, or another global financial crisis.
