Real VisionDecember 11, 2019
In a long awaited interview, legendary investor Mike Green joins Real Vision CEO, Raoul Pal, to discuss the corporate credit cycle, the rise of passive indexing, and the consequences of mass baby-boomer retirement. Green argues that the simple algorithmic logic of passive vehicles causes irrational capital allocation. He asserts that these passive strategies only make money in a liquidity-enhanced environment, and he explains that stresses to the indices' lack of cash reserves could create market volatility. Green and Pal examine the shift to passive vehicles and how that shift is molding the fate of both baby-boomer pensioners and millennials. Filmed on December 5, 2019 in London.

Why Anthony Scaramucci Is Embracing Revolutionary Technology
The key to investing in this age, according to Anthony Scaramucci, is to remain adaptive in a rapidly changing landscape. Scaramucci, founder and managing partner of Skybridge Capital, recounts listening to Jeff Bezos speak about the Amazon business model in 1999. While he was intrigued, he refrained from investing as seasoned investors like Warren Buffet dismissed the company. Applying this experience to Bitcoin, Scaramucci says, “I’m not going to miss this.” He presents his changing worldview in light of the blockchain revolution and how it affects his investing strategy. He also provides his perspective on global political tensions facing the world today and offers his solutions. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on October 19, 2021.

Former President Donald Trump’s new social media company is skyrocketing on Wall Street, sparking speculation about whether this is the next meme stock.

Across the ocean in China, Evergrande is pulled back from the brink of default with a bond coupon, earning itself another week to pay its interest. And in the crypto world, Valkyrie launches its own Bitcoin Futures ETF today on the Nasdaq, but it sunk into the shadows of the ProShares ETF launched earlier this week. Jim Bianco, president of Bianco Research, joins to unravel this packed day in price action. Interviewed by Maggie Lake. Want to submit questions?
