Chapman on the US Economy

My colleague, coauthor on several forthcoming projects, and former PhD student John Chapman was on Hugh Hewitt’s show last night, talking about the US economy. Like me John blames the Fed, not hedge funds and derivatives markets, for the housing bubble and crash. John’s investment advice: “Short the dollar and prepare for the 1970s.” Listen here (John comes on around 25:10).

    Hi Peter,

    Not only John most of blame the fed for this crash and not the markets or the housing bubble. John’s investment advice: “Short the dollar and prepare for the 1970s seems to be the right approach in this recession period.

    An interesting approach. The dollar’s fundamentals appear very weak at present with the money supply about to be increased dramatically by the Obama stimulus plan and the fed rate at zero. The future looks terrifying.
