Tuesday Conversation - Brent Johnson of Santiago Capital

CEO, Portfolio Manager

Following Monday's podcast with Luke Gromen, I thought it would be fun to next visit with our old friend (and fellow Cornhusker), Brent Johnson. For this discussion, Brent and I cover several of the same topics as yesterday while incorporating Brent's unique perspective on the markets.

So for this podcast, Brent and I begin with the same Krugman tweet that Luke and I discussed yesterday:

Repeat after me: debt is money we owe to ourselves. It doesn't make the nation as a whole poorer. https://t.co/yyAkexUV0N

— Paul Krugman (@paulkrugman) May 22, 2020

From there, we discuss:

  • the liquidity-driven necessity of QE∞
  • the impact of an official yuan devaluation
  • global demand for dollars driving its relative value higher
  • whether QE∞ will ultimately be inflationary
  • the possibility of global stagflation
  • and quite a bit in between

Many thanks to Brent for being so generous with his time. I think you'll find this podcast to be extremely interesting and thought-provoking.

Re: Home defense shotgun

Hard to beat a 870 pump. I personally have a Mossberg 500 with a pistol grip. Now if you want a real alley broom, recommend a Saiga 12 with drum mag. AA-12 great if you can find, less recoil.

And for all you constitution freedom fighters

"The scene was jarring: Police violently broke up a peaceful and legal protest by several thousands in Lafayette Park across from the White House ahead of a speech in the Rose Garden by President Donald Trump.

The protesters had gathered in the park on a sunny evening Monday following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis a week earlier.

The police fired tear gas and rubber bullets and deployed flash bangs. As police directly confronted the protesters, many held up their hands, saying, “Don’t shoot.”

So trumpy could take a stroll in the park and hold up a bible (which he should read) in front of the church ala his good bud Kim in North Korea.

IS IT ONE GIGANTIC PSY-OP? GEORGE FLOYD’S CORONER WAS ALSO...

...JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S

You just can't make this S&^t up...Actually I guess you can. We'll have to stack this one up against Climate Change, WMD's, 9-11, Syrian Chemical Weapons, Russiagate, Novochuk, the lone bullet, Cornholyouvirus, and, " I did not have sexual relations with that woman ". Oh ya, Seth Rich, MENA Arkansas, Murrah Building, Gulf of Tonkin....
