Bill Fleckenstein, Grant Williams, and Lacy Hunt: The End Game

The End Game Podcast, Released on 8/9/20

Bill and Grant welcome a man who is the absolute epitome of the phrase ‘a scholar and a gentleman’, Lacy Hunt, to The End Game. The three discuss arguably one of the greatest trades of the century: Lacy and his partner, Van Hoisington’s 40-year bet on deflation. Lacy talks about staying the course, the methodology they used to simplify their framework and what it might take for them to change tack after all this time. The perfect counterpoint to Russell Napier’s appearance in Episode 5 of The End Game, Lacy uses his encyclopedic knowledge of econometric analysis, financial history and regulatory frameworks to explain why he remains resolute in the face of a rising number of calls for the return of inflation.

Lacy Harris Hunt is an economist and Executive Vice President of Hoisington Investment Management Company (HIMCO). He is Vice-Chairman of HIMCO’s strategic investment policy committee and also Chief Economist for the Wasatch Hoisington Treasury Bond Fund.
