The Hartman Media Company, Released on 5/18/22
Jason Hartman interviews Jeff Snider, Chief Investment Strategist and Head of Global Research at Alhambra Investment Partners. Consumer prices and asset markets have created the illusion of a red hot economy, but according to Jeff, the bond market has been telling us what’s been wrong since 2008. Jeff shares with us some incredible data that shakes up traditional thinking and gives us his insights on the Federal Reserve, interest rate hikes, monetary policy and money printing and the correlation between the yield curve and treasury markets. Jeff also gives an in depth explanation of the hidden monetary system running the world. Even though most people have probably never heard the term Eurodollar, it has undertaken the functions of the global reserve currency and it did so a very long time ago as an offshore currency market. The Eurodollar was developed on its own without government or individual private effort outside of every country’s regulatory regime.
