The End Game Ep. 32 - Judy Shelton PREVIEW

June 5, 2022

In the latest episode of The End Game, Bill Fleckenstein and I have the great privilege of welcoming Judy Shelton to the podcast for a discussion that helps place one of the key missing pieces into the puzzle we’ve been attempting to assemble – the honest and frank perspective of a central banking insider.

After her nomination to the board of the Federal Reserve by President Donald Trump in 2018, Judy’s appalling treatment at her Senate confirmation hearings demonstrated the very worst of partisan politics at an incredibly toxic time in America.

A letter signed by 100 economists, including seven Nobel laureates, opposing her appointment suggests, to me, at least, that she would have been the perfect person to bring necessary change to an institution whose many failings are becoming more apparent by the day.

Judy’s openness, insight and willingness to discuss the practicalities and limitations of modern-day central banking in this conversation are a breath of fresh air and worthy of our deepest respect and gratitude.

The Grant Williams Podcast: Shifts Happen - Episode Two PREVIEW

The Grant Williams Podcast: Shifts Happen - Episode Two PREVIEW

June 1, 2022

Episode Two of Shifts Happen shines a spotlight on the shift between the ‘paper’ markets and the ‘real’ markets as the importance of energy supplies becomes ever more apparent in a world where battle lines are being drawn, supply lines are being stretched and, in the case of the EU, economic suicide is being committed.

What happens to the dollar? Will the US balance of payments finally start to matter and what are the chances of a hyperinflationary outcome? All of these questions and more are pondered in the wake of the surprising strength of the rouble and the increasing inflationary pressure being heaped upon Western governments who can’t seem to get out of their own way.

The Grant Williams Podcast Ep. 34 - Tarric Brooker PREVIEW

The Grant Williams Podcast Ep. 34 - Tarric Brooker PREVIEW

May 30, 2022

My guest in this edition of The Grant Williams Podcast is Tarric Brooker, an Aussie analyst who has become a must-follow for me and I think anyone interested in better understanding Australian politics, markets and, of course, the country’s fabled housing bubble.

Tarric and I spoke on the eve of the Australian general election – an event in which the incumbent Liberal PM, Scott Morrison was unceremoniously ousted in favour of Labor’s Anthony Albanese (or ‘Albo’ to Aussie voters!!).

The one thing that both parties have in common is an unhealthy desire to make sure the property market doesn’t crash - however, this time around, with inflation tying the RBA’s hands, the incoming Premier may not have things all his own way...

This Week In Doom Ep. 6 - Bennett Tomlin & George Noble FULL EPISODE

This Week In Doom Ep. 6 - Bennett Tomlin & George Noble FULL EPISODE

May 24, 2022

On the sixth episode of This Week In Doom, Doomberg and I turn our attention to the world of cryptocurrencies — or rather, stablecoins — in the wake of the recent collapse of Terra/Luna and the astonishing spectacle of a $60 billion meltdown.

Joining us are two high profile critics of the crypto space, Bennett Tomlin and George Noble. Bennett and his co-host Cas Piancey have been at the forefront of thoughtful criticism of the cryptoverse with their excellent podcast, Crypto Critics Corner, while George has taken the bit between his teeth on behalf of Wall Street and become an Establishment lightning rod determined to force regulators into action.

As always, the subject leads to raised voices and inflamed passions but... would you want it any other way?

The Grant Williams Podcast Ep. 33 - Tian Yang PREVIEW

May 16, 2022

My guest on this episode of The Grant Williams Podcast is Tian Yang of London-based independent research providers, Variant Perception.

Variant Perception’s pedigree is best-in-class. Their research uses a framework of proprietary leading economic and liquidity indicators to identify investment opportunities across asset classes. Those indicators are a great blend which cover tactical, cyclical and structural time horizons.

In this conversation, Tian and I discuss what those indicators are telling him, how inflation changes the landscape, the signals being sent by term premiums and the sea change that may finally allow those brave enough to take on ‘The Widowmaker’ trade to come out on top.

The End Game Ep. 32 - David Hay PREVIEW

May 16, 2022

Joining me on this installment of The Grant Williams Podcast is my friend, David Hay of Evergreen GaveKal in Bellevue, WA.

David and I discuss the dilemma facing central banks, the ways in which the return of inflation change the investment landscape, the ongoing tech wreck, the importance (and reliability) of David’s preferred measure of breakouts and breakdowns, the painful lessons he learned before discovering that particular measure and energy - a space in which David has been investing for many years

The End Game Ep. 31 - Michael Kao PREVIEW

April 24, 2022

Joining us in the latest installment of our search for The End Game is Michael Kao, formerly of Goldman Sachs, Canyon Partners and Akanthos and now a family office investor and prolific presence on Twitter, where his many epic threads have sparked debate and educated thousands.

In this conversation, we discuss multiple threads of The End Game including the changing dynamics in Japan, where Kuroda-san is belatedly realising what Mick & Keith figured out almost 70 years ago: ‘you can’t always get what you want.’

Elsewhere we cover the changing face of both the oil market and the dollar as Michael highlights brilliantly why it’s time to reverse our thinking about which drives price moves in the other, the Russia/Ukraine situation, China’s options and so much more...

The Grant Williams Podcast: Mike Rothman - PREVIEW

The Grant Williams Podcast: Mike Rothman - PREVIEW

April 24, 2022

My guest in the latest episode of the Grant Williams Podcast is the founder of Cornerstone Analytics, Mike Rothman.

Mike’s experience in the energy sector is unparalleled - something he demonstrates conclusively in this excellent conversation. In his no-nonsense style, Mike picks apart today’s energy markets - with a particular focus on oil - and explains where consensus is likely right as well as the places that might cause a few surprises.

Swiftly putting to rest the widely-held belief of a seamless transition to green energy any time in our immediate future, Mike explains why that misconception is problematic and the likely ramifications once realization dawns more broadly.

The Grant Williams Podcast: Michael Oliver - PREVIEW

The Grant Williams Podcast: Michael Oliver - PREVIEW

April 8, 2022

My guest in the latest episode of the Grant Williams Podcast is the founder of Momentum Structural Analysis, Michael Oliver.

Over the years, Michael’s proprietary work on the fluctuations in momentum has been extraordinarily good at calling major market inflection points.

Where most focus on price, Michael has demonstrated time and again that momentum not only shows a wholly different market-within-a-market, but that the importance of both waning and building momentum is underestimated by the majority of market participants.

With many of Michael’s important momentum signals flashing red, this seemed like the perfect time to have him join me for a discussion on what he does, how he does it and the current signals his superb work is sending...

The Grant Williams Podcast: Luke Gromen - FULL EPISODE

March 12, 2022

My guest in the latest episode of The Grant Williams Podcast is my good friend, Luke Gromen, publisher of Forest For The Trees.

With events in Ukraine happening at breakneck speed, the moves by Western nations to isolate Russia through a series of escalating sanctions have revealed weaknesses in the global financial system that bring into sharp focus a set of dominos Luke has been lining up for a number of years.

The dollar's place at the heart of the financial system is now under serious threat after the sanctions placed on Russia's central bank have fired a warning shot across the bow of every other central bank in the world.

What does this mean for gold? Oil? Bond markets? Currencies? Luke lays it all out in brilliant fashion as he explains why the moves of the last two weeks have changed the financial world as we know it forever.
