In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Axel Merk discuss:

  • Taper Tantrum 2.0?
    • The Fed wants to tighten. But can it?
  • Bad Balance Sheets
    • Can central banks simply hold their bad assets forever?
  • The Flattening Yield Curve
    • A classic signal of approaching recession
  • Bitcoin
    • Trying to make sense of the recent run-up
