"The Banks Are Going to Crash the Stock Market" (w/ Brent Johnson and Steven Van Metre) – Latest News Today

Brent Johnson, CEO of Santiago Capital, is joined by Steven Van Metre of Steven Van Metre Financial to discuss the most pressing issues on the macro horizon. After exploring whether quantitative easing (QE) and low rates are inflationary or deflationary, Johnson and Van Metre take a deep dive into the plumbing of the Treasury market and specifically the operations of the Fed’s FOMC. Van Metre explains why he believes the Fed’s policies have actually caused banks to tighten their lending standards rather than loosen them as the Fed intended. The pair then take a look at swap lines and the Eurodollar funding market as well as the effect a credit contraction would have on the U.S. dollar. Lastly, Van Metre talks about his Real Vision journey and how the knowledge he’s gained has helped him as an investor as well as a financial advisor. Filmed on August 24, 2020.

    First Inflation relative to dollars followed by Deflation in terms of Gold

    Inflation IS Deflation.

    This analysis of QE is wrong and makes no sense. Why would the banks sell bonds to the Fed if they got paid in money that they weren’t allowed to use? They can use the reserve accounts and they do. For example they can use them to buy more bonds.

    He is saying basically that "the Banks" are going to "engineer" a crash bigger than "the great financial crash 2008".
    Does he know about G-SIBS?
    If banks were colluding and doing this, you would see them drop equities and move to a 100% bond position. Banks are long quality and short junk. That is why historically they do well.
    The great financial crisis was, the banks got themselves into a mess because they were packaging junk with quality. The system has more checks and balances but obviously it could always be better. If you had bought banks 100 years ago, you would be doing really well today, if you were still alive.

    Talk about shilling your own warez.
    Everything here is the world viewed through the lens of a bond holder who wants higher rates.
    Problem is, business and ppl with mortgage need zero rates to borrow money, otherwise you will have stagnation or maybe collapse.

    Steven says "low rates are deflationary", and "zero rates are practically the dumbest thing a central banker can do".
    ok, but the only criticism ppl have of central banks is that they take interest on money they create. ppl demand zero rates.
    What should the interest rate be?
    ppl are literally calling central banks a "scam" because they "print money" and "take interest on money created out of thin air".
    The only ppl who benefit from high rates, would be, oh bond holders.
    The great reset is a transfer of wealth from the bond holder to the population at large.

    Markets are all about supply and demand. I wouldn't even know how to buy a bond.
    Given the fed and other major central banks were created over 100 years ago, you would expect deflation since then? but we have had consistent inflation via stimulus, over 100 years.

    My marriage of 7yrs is about to crash. I am so much depressed right now and wish I never used the money I and my husband have been saving to buy our first family home. I used the money to trade in the market and everything is gone. Now he wants to divorce me. I love my husband so much and I don't want him to leave me. I feel like killing myself right now 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

    Two of the smartest guys out there!!! MMT also says that low interest rates are deflationary and high interest rates are inflationary. But won't people in other countries whose currency starts becoming inflationary against the USD look to buy gold or bitcoin? And since everyone with a smart phone can buy bitcoin – isn't this bullish for bitcoin?

    Did you ever think that the books are propaganda and are WRONG on purpose??? Why would anyone do this?? Because it is NOT about money it is about POWER. I am also amazed that people like Grant Williams and many many others have had direct conversations with you two still don't GET IT? Weimar Republic one of the most inflationary stories out there — Weimar had HIGH INTEREST RATES not low. Think — high interest rates put more money in average person's hand. QE does not do this — it lowers interest rates to turn people into debt slaves and pumps an economy that is dependent on the private sector taking on bigger and bigger debt. Today private debt is at all time highs and the private sector can not afford to borrow anymore and this is why we NEVER get lift off in our economy.

    So let me get this straight… the fed lends money in name only to the banks. Then the banks use that 'untouchable trust fund' to borrow against incase they fail?

    Not gonna even touch on what happens when the money comes due and it's not there? Guess who owns everything you got? 2030….you'll own nothing.
