3/20/20 Mike Swanson on the Coming Recession

Mike Swanson offers his take on the current virus-induced stock market downturn. What has surprised him most so far is the fact that assets are down across the board, unlike previous recessions, which might see a decline in stocks offset by a jump in precious metals. This suggests that the real panic hasn’t actually hit yet, and that we are likely to see a lull before another big downturn. He and Scott are worried for the economy, but knew even before the coronavirus that something like this was inevitable thanks to decades of interference by the Federal Reserve and other central planners.

Discussed on the show:
