Week in Review: Quantitative Easing, Inflation, and Currency Wars (PODCAST)

"To see victory only when it is within the knowledge of the common mob is not the acme of excellence." - Sun Tzu, the Art of War

Welcome to the Week in Week in Review podcast!

With my vacation to the families cottage in Pennsylvania ... it's been a couple of weeks since I had the last podcast. This week I want to discuss those three topics as they relate to the capital markets ...

Quantitative easing: What exactly quantitative easing is, what it is not, what the hopes are for a second round of Quantitative easing

Inflation: During conversations of deflation last year, I tried to tell ones over and over again, that I am not a 'deflationist'. I was all over inflation in 2007. I would often say that when inflation comes back, I'll be one of the first guys talking about it.

And I was.

But we'll also talk about how inflation relates to recent conversations on this blog regarding psychology.

Currency Wars: What is a currency war? Why try to devalue a currency? What's the benefit? What is the danger, especially in this environment?
