Tom welcomes macro money manager, bond king, and financial planner Steven Van Metre back to the show. Steven answers several listener questions later on in the show.

Steven discusses his latest video on why Q.E. does not mean money creation. The Fed is just swapping assets and forcing money into the commercial banking system. Two main banks are absorbing most of the stimulus money. Most money is stored in the banking system and is not moving. They want to suppress and lower interest rates while pushing the dollar higher. The bond market doesn’t work the way most people think. Investors need to understand this system because it will explain most things.

The pandemic created many supply issues and caused a lot of money to flow back to the United States. This is now impacting foreign countries which are dollar starved.

Steven is concerned that most investors are in the wrong asset classes and don’t understand how bonds work. We’re going to see interest rates move lower and the economy will likely head down.

Q.E. traps dollars thus causing a shortage which drives the price for dollars higher on a global level. By trapping money in the commercial banking sector it reduces monetary velocity. They want to get the global economy moving again and therefore they want to export as many dollars as possible.

Consumers are now returning to their normal needs for money by borrowing from credit cards. He explains the effects of the dollar rising and how this could play out like the 2007 crisis. A rising dollar indicates tightening and that means prices for everything else will move lower.

Steven discusses the actions the Fed will take when equities sell-off. In the past they would do more Q.E. but this time they may have a hard time deciding what to do. The Fed is being blamed for inflation and they aren’t responsible. The Fed may have a hard time doing Q.E. next time around for political reasons and he believes the Fed put is now completely out of the question.
