In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Wolf Richter discuss:
- How Negative Interest Rates Work
- Their (Many) Nefarious Unintended Consequences
- Too Much Capital Is Getting Pushed Into Higher Risk
- The High Cost Of Our Relentless Pursuit Of “Growth”
It’s been a surprisingly busy summer developments-wise in the world. We’ve had so much fresh content covering it all that’s it’s been a challenge to publish everything in a timely manner. Some releases get delayed in order to rush breaking news out to you.

The US is one of the only sovereign bond markets left trading in positive territory. And the Fed has resumed an easing cycle, so that, too, may not last for much longer.
What are the implications of a bizarro world below the 0%-bound? They are unnatural and fraught with toxic unintended consequences, as Wolf explains here.
