TFMR Podcast #23 - The Jim Willie Trifecta

284

On Wednesday, I spoke again with the inimitable Golden Jackass, Jim Willie.

First of all, I hope you've got some time to devote to listening as this baby clocks in at about 55 minutes. I tell you what, though, it's well worth your time. Think of it as two acts. In the opening act, Jim answers some of the Turdite questions that were submitted earlier this week. We tried to cover as many as we could but we only got to 5 or 6 of them. The questions were so good that it took a while to answer them but we tried our best to hit the most popular queries. In act two, Jim and I discuss current events and the developing "black hole" of the U.S. treasury market and U.S. government deficit funding.

Jim's on his game here so sit back, relax, maybe crack a cold one and enjoy.

Look for the wild card events

beyond just the continued bank runs and bond failures like the Euro no longer trading on the forex...

Ok, back to listening to the other half. Nice anniversary gift, thank you Turd.

Looking Forward to Listening

Thanks Turd - I look forward to these podcasts (and Jim is one of my favourites) - I will certainly be subscribing to the new Turdville radio, when it comes out.

The whole turd metaphor is really messing with my head. I truly thought you were talking about something else here.

LOL! Damn that was funny!

You people have no idea how many times I read something and start laughing and feel great sitting on my side of it and chuckling. Some seriously funny folks .

And other times I'm nodding my head a little and going "H'mmm?" from some brilliant or appropriate stroke of brain energy.

Or maybe just a bacon mention...

LMAO!
