1. India: Uncaging a tiger - Real Vision

Andrei Stetsenko, partner at Farley Capital, joins Real Vision to discuss how India’s positive demographic tailwinds could serve as a solution to the global retirement crisis. Stetsenko explains how India’s young, growing, and urbanizing population is the polar opposite of the old, shrinking, and already urbanized populations of the developed world. Furthermore, he reveals why India’s demographic factors have been a catalyst for turbo-charged economic development. Stetsenko argues that this trend is only going to continue and discusses the investing framework he has developed after years of investing in India. Filmed on February 6, 2020, in New York.

Howe Street Interview: Unprecedented Washington market intervention

Oil has collapsed on the back of Wuhan coronavirus fears while, but Apple (Mostly Sunny; AAPL) keeps climbing despite the device maker's exposure to China. What could explain the divergence? How about billions of dollars of liquidity being thrown at the financial system from the U.S. Fed and Treasury? That is the opening topic in my latest interview with Jim Goddard on

The coming retirement crisis and the everything bubble - Real Vision

How can ordinary people behaving rationally create a generational threat? Raoul Pal, in his role as CEO and co-founder of Global Macro Investor, joins Real Vision to explain the interconnected problem of the everything bubble and the coming retirement crisis to answer the question, “why do we invest?” He explains in detail how the baby boomer generation, through the rational and reasonable behavior of seeking to live and retire comfortably, has fueled the creation of a massive financial bubble that touches nearly every corner of the economy.

A demographic reaper is on its way

Filmed on February 4, 2020 in Grand Cayman, Pal breaks down the crucial trends:

The three big Canadian opportunities in 2020 plus a very sweet Valentine's deal

The US administration is doing all it can to juice stock markets ahead of November. We have all seen the US president pressure the US Federal Reserve into cutting rates and doing QE. However, what is less understood is the role that the US Treasury is playing behind the scenes by forcing the Fed’s hand via active management of its General Account.
We learned all about the tricks that the US Treasury is up to with its General Account in a fantastic Real Vision episode last week. In the final segment of Raoul Pal's deep dive into the recent repo market upheaval, Dr. Z. Barton Wang explains to Raoul Pal how the US Treasury is forcing liquidity into the system.

Raoul Pal digs into repo madness on Real Vision

That is exactly the type of insight I expected to get from Real Vision when I decided to make it part of the INK platform last year. After watching that episode, I have little doubt that the US government is going to do all it can to keep asset prices elevated until the election. The unprecedented efforts by Washington to inflate the system will open the doors to what I believe are three big opportunities in Canada.
