What the Post-Covid Economy Looks Like with Jim Bianco & Chris Martenson

Peak Prosperity, Released on 9/10/23

Ever wondered about the pulse of the bond market? Or pondered which countries are in the lead when it comes to buying oil in these tumultuous times? Jim posits, and I think you’ll find this fascinating, that we’re operating in more of a unified world market than most of us are inclined to believe. Now, let’s talk about the enigma that is the Federal Reserve. What are they really up to behind those monumental columns? And in a world that’s rapidly transforming, the ‘work from home’ culture is ushering in its own set of challenges, but it’s not the grim picture some are painting. In fact, there might be a silver lining we’re all overlooking. On the grimmer side, a distressing social trend has emerged: videos of people breaking down, unable to meet the basic costs of living. It’s a sign of the times, but how did we get here? From the era of the ‘nifty fifty’ to today’s ‘magnificent seven,’ market powerhouses have shifted, and the influence of these giants is palpable. And before we wrap up today, we’ll touch upon the elephant in the room – the still untapped and unpredictable potential of AI on our global economy. Buckle up, folks; this is one episode you won’t want to miss.
