Episode Date
The End Game Ep. 19 - Gerard Minack PREVIEW
12:43

Bill and Grant welcome Gerard Minack of Minack Advisors in Sydney to The End Game to discuss certain 'issues' Gerard took with some of the points made by previous guests in the series.

Gerard concurs about the importance of the inflation vs. deflation debate, but has a few important, idiosyncratic ideas of his own to include in the discussion.

What follows is yet another thought-provoking conversation guaranteed to have you reconsidering much you already thought to be true.

If Gerard is right and the strike price on the Fed Put has been lowered - possibly dramatically - it's time to reassess many strategies that have worked reliably for investors for decades.

The Grant Williams Podcast: Luke Gromen, FFTT LLC - Preview
12:40

Luke Gromen is a good friend and a master at joining seemingly obscure dots into a narrative that helps explain the bigger macro picture. Over the years his work has helped me piece together complex strategic and geopolitical narratives that have helped inform my views on precious metals, oil, currencies and capital flows. In this conversation, we discuss the book 1931: debt, crisis and the rise of Hitler and try to better understand historical parallels that echo loudly in the present. The seemingly inevitable path to yield curve control, the similarities and differences between Japan and the West and the likely consequences of unfettered stimulus all come under the microscope in what I found to be another truly eye-opening discussion - one that showcases Luke at his brilliant best.

The End Game Ep. 18 - 'Markets In Turmoil' Edition feat. Marc Cohodes & Dr. Ben Hunt
01:20:29

The uncovering of the Greensill fraud and the Archegos liquidation have rocked markets in recent weeks but, as always, the narrative around both of these events is woefully misguided.

In this special 'Markets In Turmoil' edition of The End Game, Fleck and me are joined by Marc Cohodes and Dr. Ben Hunt to try and make sense of not just the movements this week as the Archegos unwind rippled through markets, but the potential fallout from Greensill's failure.

We discuss the importance of each event to broader markets, how they came to be possible, what the real story behind the careful-constructed narrative appears to be as well as the likely ramifications.

The Grant Williams Podcast: James Davolos, Horizon Kinetics - Preview
12:38

One theme which has continually surfaced across just about every episode of The Grant Williams Podcast, is that of the debate surrounding whether deflation remains our likely future, or whether the return of inflation may finally be on the horizon after so many false starts.

Given the persistence of the discussion, who better to drag into the ring than James Davolos, of Horizon Kinetics?

Horizon has constructed an ETF designed to provide investors with a way to simply play the inflation narrative – something which is more difficult to do than one might think!

In this discussion, James and I dig into how his thinking around inflation has evolved, the problems inherent in trying to mitigate the risks it poses to the average portfolio as it’s constructed today and  the role ESG may well play going forward.

Super Terrific Happy Hour Ep. 10 - Just The Two Of Us - PREVIEW
12:43

Stephanie and Grant reconvene to noodle about a whole bunch of hot button topics including bitcoin – specifically Steph’s concerns about possible regulatory interference and the under-discussed question as to where the crypto darling may rank in the capital structure – whether any upcoming inflationary pressures are likely to merely be transitory and the change in the seasons which seems to be bringing springtime to the world of value investing just as winter approaches for technology and growth stocks.

The two discuss the effect an extra 10 million people out of work might have on both saving and spending, the likelihood that the housing market will continue to be strong as an ox and the nature of long-term, intractable problems that are all too obvious but never seem to matter until they’re right on top of us.

Mar 20, 2021
The End Game Ep. 17: Milton Berg Preview
12:43

Bill and Grant welcome Milton Berg of MB Advisors, LLC to The End game for an illuminating look into the technical side of the current market environment.

Milton outlines the overwhelming number of positive technical indicators which suggest that the ‘Everything Bubble’ may be nothing of the sort, why occasionally drifting from a technical focus to a fundamental focus has caused him problems in the past and why he thinks this party will only come to an end when certain conditions are met.

As the search for The End Game continues, this conversation demonstrates that watching the manifestation of human behaviour may be the most important requirement right now and that the idiosyncrasy of crowd psychology is one factor for which there will never be an End Game. 

Mar 15, 2021
The End Game Ep. 16: Russell Clark - Preview
12:00

Bill and Grant welcome Russell Clark of Russell Clark Investment Management to The End Game for a deeply fascinating discussion which draws on Russell’s wealth of knowledge about Japan to map the path taken by the Bank of Japan and attempt to figure out what clues it can offer us as to the ultimate End Game.

 

Russell details his experiences trying to buy JGBs and the lightbulb moment he experienced during the process and digs deep into the connection between food prices and inflation – explaining just how important (and misunderstood) the food complex is by most investors.

 

What follows is another conversation guaranteed to send you in a totally different direction in your own search for The End Game...

The Narrative Game Ep. 5: Casino! - Preview
11:48

Ben and Grant examine the recent reddit/WallStreetBets assault on Wall Street and pick apart the narrative surrounding a story that’s kept the financial world (and far beyond) in its thrall for weeks on end.

Is this the revolution it’s purported to be? Is Main Street finally ‘sticking it to the suits’, or is there a different truth behind thousands of headlines describing a stock market that’s turned into a casino?

Ben explains the different players at the poker table, the distinctly misaligned interests of each and why the appearance of a new ‘bully’, while interesting fodder for social media, disguises the fact that the real beneficiaries of  this so-called revolution are quietly rubbing their hands in glee ... safe in the comfortable confines of their Wall Street offices.

Feb 28, 2021
The End Game Ep. 15: Jim Stack - Preview
10:20

In this special preview, Grant and Bill welcome Jim Stack of InvesTech Research to The End Game for a fascinating conversation about how Jim sees The End Game playing out. From the outcome desired this time around by the Federal reserve to the results the last time they blew an epic, speculative bubble in the late-1990s, Jim explains where his technical signals suggest we are in the process, what he’s looking for to suggest the party may finally be winding up and why tenure in the investment industry is going to be hugely important in the months to come. Jim runs through his proprietary indicators, explains why he pays little attention to sentiment indicators and offers some hope for a smooth transition from the everything bubble to something resembling normalcy (whatever that is these days)...

12:33

The Grant Williams Podcast - Short Shrift
47:20

Grant invites two accomplished shortsellers, Marc Cohodes and Bill Fleckenstein to discuss the wild gyrations in equity markets in recent days as a coordinated move by retail investors to attack 'shortsellers' and inflict pain upon Wall Street proves to be, in some ways at least, a roaring success.

There are, however, nuances to this story which are perhaps not broadly understood and are in need of a little illumination - most notably, the difference between 'shortsellers' and 'highly leveraged hedge fund shorts'.

Bill, Marc and Grant discuss the important differences between the two, the events that have transpired and the potential path from here as well as some thoughts on why and how the system is broken, where the anger of retail investors ought to perhaps more accurately be directed and why this growing revolution may be an important turning point...

Super Terrific Happy Hour Ep. 9 - David Rosenberg: I've Never Met A Rude Canadian
01:20:17

Stephanie and Grant welcome David Rosenberg of Rosenberg Research to The Super Terrific Happy Hour for a fun-filled conversation about the disconnect between the economy and risk assets, the probability Rosie places on the return of significant inflation and much, much more.

From the negligible likely impact of the supposed positives of Covid life on overall GDP to the importance of having robust econometric models and understanding the dramatic changes to spending and saving habits by U.S. consumers, Rosie offers a masterful breakdown of the most important factors to be considered when assessing where we go from here.

It looks as though Q3 is setting up to be a very, very important watershed...

The Grant Williams Podcast - Both Sides Of The Coin: A Civilized Bitcoin Debate
01:54:40

Grant welcomes Mike Green of Logica Funds and Nic Carter of Castle Island Ventures & CoinMetrics for a civilized debate about Bitcoin (with a little Tether chat thrown in for good measure). With so much polarization around this topic, it seemed like a good opportunity to try and flesh out the case both for and against bitcoin with two men who've become vocal proponents for their respective causes. What followed was a wonderful exchange of ideas with both Mike and Nic demonstrating precisely why each side of the debate values their opinion so highly.

Will  any minds be changed by this? It's highly unlikely... but let's see, shall we? REMINDER: This is the penultimate free edition of The Grant Williams Podcast.

The End Game Ep. 14 - Paul Singer
01:03:08

Bill and Grant welcome Paul Singer, Founder, President, Co-Chief Executive Officer, and Co-Chief Investment Officer of Elliott Investment Management L.P.

Among the topics covered in this extremely rare and endlessly fascinating conversation are Paul's thoughts on the importance of understanding markets are little more than mass experiments in psychology, the fallacy of 'sitting passively', the creation of value for clients and the corner into which the Fed and other central banks have painted themselves.

Where did he get things wrong and why? What went according to his forecasts, and, most importantly, what has this turbulent year taught him that will help him in the future? From the dangers of 'Big Dicking it' to Robert Shiller's nasty case of FOMO to the curious birth of the Equity Vigilantes, James shows precisely why his thoughts are so indispensable to his clients. Oh, and for all you crypto zeal...fans out there, this is a conversation you won't want to miss - albeit one with a potentially nasty sting in its tail...

Despite a couple of technical glitches, what follows is an extraordinary deep dive into Fred's process for producing his incredible monthly letter, an examination of gold's role in a portfolio and some detailed explanations as to why gold and, in particular, some of the companies that pull it from the ground have an important role to play in The End Game.

54:19

Orwell's 1984, the words you need to recognise as both sides try to mobilise opinion and the importance of creating an 'Other' all come under the microscope as does, troublingly, Ben's choice for the big theme of 2021: regime change around the world.

Gold's role in a portfolio, how to identify potential investments and the importance of managing the psychological component of what can be a tempestuous ride all come under the microscope.

The Grant Williams Podcast - TC
01:44:21

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
51:41

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
01:19:27

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
01:15:54

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.

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.

Stephanie and Grant are joined by an old friend, Dave Iben, Chief Investment Officer and Lead Portfolio Manager of Kopernik Global Investors - one of the great value investors of his generation.

The three discuss the art of value investing, the challenges it faces in today's market environment and why it's a bad idea to write any obituaries for the strategy just yet.

Dave talks about the cycles he's witnessed over his career as he gets ready to enter his fifth decade in the business, the lessons he's learned and offers some thoughts on where value can be found off the beaten path as equity markets scream towards all-time highs.

A masterclass in what is, sadly, fast-becoming a lost art...
