Harry Dent, Economy & Markets Daily, Released on 5/18/16
Like our resident market P.I. John Del Vecchio, Kyle Bass is one of those hedge fund managers who profited in the last crash when he bought credit default swaps to short the housing market.
He’s also one of the few financiers in the market today who says there’s a reasonable chance the U.S. will fall into a recession over the coming months. But he’s really on the money when it comes to China.
Mr. Bass estimates that China’s bad debt exposure is at least five times that of the subprime crisis in the U.S.
Think that’s enough to trigger the next global financial crisis and depression?
