The signs the global economy is heading into recession continue to mount. If you haven’t seen them, you’re about to. Tavi Costa of Crescat Capital has put together a chart series that visualizes the economic slowdown clearly. And on the day we recorded this interview, Bloomberg Economics revealed its models now predict a 100% probability that a recession will hit within the next 12 months. So how bad will it get? What will the impact be on markets? And are there opportunities for investors to protect and possibly prudently grow their wealth as the recession unfolds? We’ll get Tavi’s answers to all of those questions.
