- December 9, 2022
This week, I spoke with Felix Zulauf, one of the top macro investors of our era. At Zulauf Consulting, he publishes a research service read by investment firms and family offices around the world. At our Strategic Investment Conference, he’s always one of the top-rated speakers.
In this week’s Global Macro Update, Felix and I talk about how the unstable geopolitical landscape is disrupting supply chains and setting markets up for dramatic changes... how to navigate the coming decade of roller coaster markets... the failed policies that could doom the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency (and what may replace it)… why 2024–2025 could usher in a calamity in our financial and economic systems... and much more.

In the last two decades, China’s trade with Latin America and the Caribbean has grown 26-fold, from $12 billion to $315 billion. It also overtook America as the top supplier in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and South America.
The visual is truly staggering:
How will this affect the US dollar hegemony? Is China the new Japan? Get the answers to these and many more questions in this episode.
