Danielle DiMartino Booth
CEO & Chief Strategist for Quill Intelligence Danielle DiMartino Booth joined the podcast in 2023 to discuss important economic indicators and their potential impact on the financial markets. This episode got deep into hard data on unemployment, and Danielle gives her reasoning on why she thinks Jerome Powell is unlikely to be politically dethroned and what it means for the lower bound of interest rates. Although the episode covers serious topics, Danielle is one of the rare guests who can discuss Fed policy and then crack a joke about Bitcoin.
The inventor of the Dollar Milkshake Theory and CEO of Santiago Capital has had multiple appearances on the Gold Exchange podcast and never fails to disappoint! In 2023 Brent Johnson explains why the current monetary system is rigged in favor of the US dollar and how to break out of absolutest thinking and instead see currencies in a relative light. Keith and Brent discuss the similarities and differences between the dollar and gold and how to think of the risk of derivatives failing compared to the underlying asset. This is a must-watch episode!
The Acid Capitalist is the founder of Eclectica Macro, a St. Barts luxury hotelier, and a podcast guest who holds nothing back! Hugh Hendry offers his takes on what a financial nuke means for the banking sector, the reason why BRICS will not get off the ground, and what he sees as the only real drivers of economic growth. The episode covers lots of ground with one of the most eclectic minds in macro!
When it comes to understanding the Eurodollar system there is nobody better than Jeff Snider of Eurodollar University. Jeff explains what the Eurodollar is, how it’s solved some financial problems, and how it created others. Then we also ask Jeff if he thinks it’s more likely that Stephanie Kelton becomes Treasury Secretary or that the Fed will add Bitcoin to their balance sheet. Hilarious and informative!
