Off the Cuff: Signs of Instability All Around Us
In this week's Off the Cuff with Mish & Chris podcast, Mish and Chris reunite to debate:
- The Facebook faceplant
- A great example of how artificial price supports end badly
- The Inevitable 'Grexit'
- The faster Greece hits rock bottom and can start recovering, the better
- Where next for home prices?
- Mish thinks we may be at a good entry point; Chris predicts more downside
Wherever one looks these days, there are signs of growing instability. Perennial investor darlings like Apple and Facebook (and their social media brethren) are stumbling. Europe continues to devolve as the players there dance to delay the inevitable. And most asset classes (housing, stock market, etc.) are likely to experience more downward price movement until and unless the next major round of money printing is announced. Both Chris and Mish agree that gold offers good protection against the growing instability, as well as against the purchasing power destruction that further quantitative easing will cause.
