Video: It’s Not an Asset Bubble ... It’s a Cash Bubble
The “everything bubble” has been discussed in the financial press for years: The idea that — across the board — asset prices have severed their link with reality, with PE ratios in the stock market going far beyond what we used to call “overvalued.”
Now, we’re seeing retail price inflation and rapid increases in asset prices. It’s no shock that the Federal Reserve’s excessive money printing is at the heart of this issue. But asset prices aren’t the true bubble.
According to Weiss Crypto Sunday Special host Chris Coney, the bubble we're looking for is hidden underneath: a cash bubble.
It's almost a reverse bubble ... a negative bubble. Typically, in a bubble, you have an asset that skyrockets in price, then the bubble bursts at the top and the price rapidly comes back down to what we would call a reasonable level. But the cash bubble is the opposite. Cash has crushed in price, creating a negative bubble. If that bursts, the price of cash will rapidly go back up, meaning we'll get fewer assets for our money.
In this week’s Sunday Special, Chris delves into:
• The impact of the velocity of money on the rate of innovation in the economy.
• The role of DeFi in circumventing the stranglehold of the financial system on that innovation.
This intriguing look at the current state of our economy and the possibilities of DeFi couldn’t be timelier. I recommend you watch the full video now.
