Dr. Chris Martenson: Markets Make No Sense Anymore?

Wall St. For Main St., Released on 8/31/17

During this 25+ minute interview, Jason starts off by asking Chris a big picture question about all the coordinated market intervention by central banks with at least $18 trillion in money and credit created out of thin air since the 2008 financial crisis and how it has propelled valuations in stocks, bonds and real estate higher without gold and silver doing much?

Chris says this central bank coordination, manipulation and interventions has created the “everything bubble” where a lot of things are divorced from reality and make no sense anymore.

Jason and Chris discuss how short term rent seeking myopic behavior by economic and political elites means near unlimited bailouts or spending is available for banks or for new wars but no sound long term investments are made into rapidly declining infrastructure in the US.
