Liberty and Finance, Released on 9/7/23

The recession has been postponed, not avoided, says portfolio manager Michael Pento. He discusses the current concerns he has for the US economy and banking system. The balance sheets of banks remains a huge issue, he explains and notes their assets are largely down or at major risk of value decline. If the Fed hadn’t stepped in, there would have been a “chain reaction of bank defaults.”
