Mike Swanson joins the show for an update on the U.S. economy. He says that some investors think the recent 20 percent drop in the stock market was the needed “correction,” and that the economy is now healthy. But Swanson warns that we’re far from out of the woods, and he believes the real crash is yet to come, even after the temporary rally we’re seeing now. This is exactly what happened in 2000 and 2007. Finally, he cautions against being fully invested in stocks, despite the advice of some mainstream advisers.
Discussed on the show:
- “Be Wary of Dead Cat Bounce Stocks and Look For New Leaders” (WallStreetWindow.com)
- This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly
- “Current Account Deficit” (Investopedia)
- “Overnight Rate” (Investopedia)
