    The End Game Ep. 7 - Edward Chancellor

    Bill and Grant welcome historian, journalist and author Ed Chancellor to The End Game. Ed’s remarkable book, Devil Take The Hindmost, chronicles three centuries of bubbles and manias and, in this wonderful conversation, he shares his thoughts on how and why they end, the historical parallels previous bubbles share with today and the likely problems the world faces at it moves through The End Game. Entertaining, insightful and packed with historical relevance, this is a conversation you won’t want to miss.

    The Grant Williams Podcast - TC

    WARNING: AN OPEN MIND IS REQUIRED TO LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST!!In the first of yet another random series of conversations, Grant welcomes TC to the podcast to discuss the recent edition of TC's Chartcast featuring Tesla whistleblower, Karl Hansen.TC explains how that episode came about, his thoughts on Karl's story and the broader implications of continuing poor behaviour by bad actors and regulators alike against a backdrop of increasing corporate malfeasance.Thoughtful, considered and compelling, TC shares tales of his own harassment since a social media experiment became a Twitter phenomenon and offers thoughts on what happens next.Confirmation bias for bears, kryptonite for bulls but, in the middle, for those willing to listen, lies great importance for all.

    The Narrative Game Ep. 3 - The Grift That Keeps On Giving

    The Narrative Game Ep. 3 - The Grift That Keeps On Giving

    Ben and Grant reconvene to discuss the broader changes evidenced by two very different presidential interviews, and the extraordinary ongoing escalation in the level of pure grift swamping the world - a situation which becomes seemingly more egregious with each passing day.Chris Cornell's level of happiness, the thoughts of Yogi Berra and Blaise Pascal and the damage that a mobster called Bobo could do to a man armed only with a bag of oranges are all referenced in an attempt to try and unravel the narratives du jour.

    The End Game Ep. 6 - Lacy Hunt

    The End Game Ep. 6 - Lacy Hunt

    Bill and Grant welcome a man who is the absolute epitome of the phrase 'a scholar and a gentleman', Lacy Hunt, to The End Game.The three discuss arguably one of the greatest trades of the century: Lacy and his partner, Van Hoisington's 40-year bet on deflation.Lacy talks about staying the course, the methodology they used to simplify their framework and what it might take for them to change tack after all this time.The perfect counterpoint to Russell Napier's appearance in Episode 5 of The End Game, Lacy uses his encyclopedic knowledge of econometric analysis, financial history and regulatory frameworks to explain why he remains resolute in the face a rising number of calls for the return of inflation.

    The End Game Ep. 5 - Russell Napier

    The End Game Ep. 5 - Russell Napier

    Bill and Grant welcome Russell Napier to The End Game to discuss the reasons behind the long-term disinflationist's recent decision to step off that train and prepare for the return of inflation.Using examples from the 1690s, 1930s and 1970s, Russell makes the case for inflation in the United States hitting 4% before the end of the year and explains why recent moves by the U.S. government to circumvent the Federal Reserve have changed the game dramatically and, potentially, bring The End Game much closer.Russell offers a primer on real financial repression and explains how dangerously different the world may look in the not-too-distant future.Strap yourself in - this is another head-spinning conversation.

    The End Game Ep. 4 - Jim Grant

    Bill and Grant welcome the legendary Jim Grant, founder and editor of Grant's Interest Rate Observer, and author of a number of stupendous chronicles of both financial history and those who helped shape it.The three discuss the importance of historical parallels to today's somewhat bemusing coin shortage before digging deeper into the past to examine previous inflationary episodes and discuss what lessons they might offer for our immediate future as we move towards The End Game.As always, Jim brings an encyclopaedic knowledge wrapped in an eloquence and humour sadly lacking in today's financial commentary.

Better than bubble vision

Don’t watch the cable financial networks and shows. Listen to these people to see behind the financial curtain!

Tesla

So I came to this episode with an open mind like you asked. I have a small Tesla position. I listened to entire podcast and heard about how Elon exaggerates and makes false promises. I also heard about an employee or employees that stole some copper. You say exaggeration is fraud.
I heard nothing that convinced me Elson is not like many other big time CEOs nor did I hear anything that makes be believe Tesla is a house of cards ready to collapse.
I have not sold any shares and realize now that the shorts are just angry and bitter people.

Lacy Hunt Episode

Love the macro understanding!

I worry about the general unskilled management and understanding in the field of finance at the highest levels of government and industry. Couple this with cultivated ignorance in the populous about money and economics and you have lemmings marching off a cliff.

I appreciate your podcast and discussions.
