Gordon Long: Will Russia Sanctions Trigger A Worldwide Credit Crisis?

Wealthion, Released on 3/1/22

The world has quickly become less stable over the first 2 months of 2022. Financial system stability, especially in the all-important bond market, was eroding at a concerning pace prior to last week, but Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine is serving as an accelerant to the situation. The severe economic sanctions being applied against Russia, including banning it from the SWIFT international payments platform, are near-certain to create painful consequences for ALL parties involved. To give us an understanding of the key risks to monitor, we welcome market analyst Gordon Long to the program. Gordon has issued several recent warnings about the credit markets in his latest investor letters and I’m eager to hear him explain why.

Mr. Long is a former senior group executive with two Fortune 500 international corporations, a principal in a high tech public start-up and founder of a private venture capital fund. He is presently involved in private equity placements internationally along with proprietary trading involving the development & application of Chaos Theory and Mandelbrot Generator algorithms. Gordon’s work can be found here.

Adam Taggart is the Founder of Wealthion. He is also Co-Founder and former President of Peak Prosperity. Adam is an experienced Silicon Valley internet executive and Stanford MBA. Prior to partnering with Chris Martenson (Adam was General Manager of our earlier site, ChrisMartenson.com), he was a Vice President at Yahoo!, a company he served for nine years. Before that, he did the ‘startup thing’ (mySimon.com, sold to CNET in 2001). As a fresh-faced graduate from Brown University in the early 1990s, Adam got a first-hand look at all that was broken with Wall Street as an investment banking analyst for Merrill Lynch. Most importantly, he’s a devoted husband and dad.
