BlackSwanPlease find the global macro webinar as promised is attached at the link below.  I apologize for the quality of the slides in the presentation; they are quite bad and I couldn’t seem to improve them.  But the audio is fine so I suggest you follow along using the PDF version of the slides instead which are also available at the link below.

Power Point Presentation 

It is shaping up to be a very interesting year.  We are already seeing plenty of opportunities-long the dollar, short stocks, short emerging markets, long bonds, etc. only one-month into the new year. 

Just to repeat the major investment themes covered in the webinar recording and on page four of the power point:


  • Deflation pressures continue and likely intensify [this is structural]
  • No rush to taper aggressively
  • US current account improvement and taper – money flows back to center
  • Euro crisis likely revisited later in the year – politics and single currency straight jacket
  • China muddles through but reform is key – slower GDP growth either way
  • Japan still a wildcard


Please let me know if you have questions or would like more information on any of the topics I covered.
